Public safety continues to be a priority for the Honeymoon Fire. Please be advised that some areas may contain hazards such as: ash and needles on the trail that can make the trail slippery, burned out stump holes that make the ground week and unstable, unstable dead trees, loose rocks and logs that have the potential to roll, and flash flooding and mud flows, especially in areas without vegetation. Take proper safety precautions such as: checking the weather forecast let someone know where you are, and locate your camp away from burned trees. Conditions in a burned forest change constantly. Be alert at all times.
