People using the lower Cook and Green trail #959 should use caution in the Lick fire area and watch for hazardous conditions along the trail including burned trees and holes adjacent to the trail.
Acting District Ranger Ian Reid said, “We thank forest and wilderness visitors for their patience and respect while these closures were in effect to provide for public and firefighter safety. We hope forest visitors enjoy a safe and successful deer hunting season.”
Visitors to recently opened portions of the Red Buttes Wilderness are advised they may still see fire suppression activity for the next week, including low elevation helicopter flights. They may also hear motorized equipment such as chain saws and pumps.
“The Siskiyou Mountains Ranger District employees appreciated the outpouring of support from the upper Applegate community over the last six weeks,” added Reid.
Closures associated with the Fort Complex also remain in effect on the Klamath National Forest. Check Inciweb for additional information at http://www.inciweb.org/incident/3117/
