Cedar East Omnibus & Lewis Camp Closure

Trail Closures for Cedar East Prescribed Burn - October 2017

Incident: Cedar East Omnibus & Lewis Camp Prescribed Fire
Released: 10/17/2017

The following area in Cedar Grove, known as the Cedar East Prescribed Burn Unit, is temporarily closed to all individuals except firefighters, overhead personnel assigned to the Cedar East Burn, or other NPS individuals approved by the Burn Boss:

A small section of the Cedar Grove Sand Flats Trail will have limited access. This section will be open by escort only and subject to delays.

The fire activity along the trails and inside the burn unit boundary creates a hazardous condition for the public. Adequate trails and features exist in the nearby areas that can provide a comparable visitor experience as well as access in and out of the Kings Canyon Wilderness.

The closure will become effective at 0600 hours on October 17, 2017. This closure will remain in effect until conditions in the area of the prescribed fire have progressed to a stage where minimal public hazard remains, as determined by the Burn Boss or a Parks Fire Management Officer.

Authority for adoption: Code of Federal Regulations, 36 CFR, Part 1.5
