Closures and Fire Restrictions
The Lincoln National Forest and Mescalero Apache Tribal lands are currently under Fire Restrictions. There are no campfires allowed outside of developed campgrounds and no smoking outdoors in the forest.
All previous road closures have been lifted. Three Rivers Campground remains closed. We recommend finding an alternate place to camp and hike that is outside of the Bonito Corridor.
The Capitan Mountains Wilderness remains open, however there is a closure order in effect for the White Mountains Wilderness; this includes all trails within the wilderness area. For a list of closed trails visit https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/7440/.
