“We are happy that people can get back into some of their favorite places on the Forest,” said Fire Management Officer Ashley Sites. “We also encourage everyone to be very careful in any burned areas. Fire weakened trees can fall with little, or no warning.”
Closures around the Emigrant Fire include FS Road 348 from its junction with the Gold Prize Road. FS Trails #61 (Sixmile Trail), #606 (North Fork Sixmile Trail) and #65 (Emigrant Creek Trail) will remain closed in their entirety. A detailed closure order map will be available online at http://www.inciweb.org/incident/maps/3657/.
All of the area previously closed around the Sheep Fire in the Tom Miner Basin will now be open to Forest visitors.
