Controlled Burning Above Town at High Elevation

Tomorrow, on December 7, Ashland Forest Resiliency Project (AFR) is managing a high elevation controlled burn near Panther Peak. Smoke is not expected to impact the community. Some smoke could drift over the No Candies Trail.

Check weather and smoke on the watershed camera and see the burn location on the controlled burn map. See alternative recreation routes here.
