For Your Safety
Portions of the area you are entering were burned during recent fires. Be aware that you may encounter hazards in the forest such as:
Ash and Needles on the Trail – can make trail slippery.
Burned-Out Stump Holes – ground may be weak & unstable.
Unstable Dead Trees – Especially in windy conditions!
Loose Rocks and Logs – watch for rolling debris.
Flash Flooding and Mud Flows – especially in areas without vegetation.
Conditions in a burned forest change constantly. Be alert!
Take proper safety precautions such as:
Check the weather forecast before you leave.
Assess current weather conditions in the forest.
Let someone know where you are.
Locate your camp away from burned trees.
