Area Closures remain in effect to ensure public safety on the South Fork Complex at this time.
The current Area Closure Orders, along with maps, are available at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/malheur/alerts-notices.

Forest Officials encourage everyone to be safe and careful when recreating, hunting, or using the National Forest.
