SIX RIVERS NATIONAL FOREST- ORDER NO. 22-10-07 SRF Lightning Complex Executed at Eureka, California this 8th day of September 2022. Signed by KATHY M. ALLEN, Acting Forest Supervisor
 
This Order supersedes Forest Order No. 22-10-06, executed August 9, 2022.

 
Exhibit A:
 
The SRF Lightning Complex Closure Area comprises a majority of the Lower Trinity Ranger District of Six Rivers National Forest and follows the district’s boundary for most of its perimeter, as shown on Exhibit C (map). The closure area begins where Forest System Roads 9N02 and 9N04 meet on the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation’s eastern boundary (Township 9N, Range 5E, Section 15), near the district’s northernmost tip. The closure area continues south along the eastern reservation boundary to the reservation’s southeast corner, then continues west along the reservation’s southern boundary to the western edge of the district. The closure area then continues south along the district’s western boundary, inclusive of 20 outlying SRF parcels west of the contiguous Forest boundary (see Exhibit C). The closure area departs from the western district boundary at the boundary of sections 1 and 12 of Township 4 North, Range 4East, approximately 0.6 miles south of Grouse Mountain, heading east along the section boundary until reaching the eastern shoreline of the South Fork Trinity River. From this juncture, the closure area proceeds north along the eastern shoreline of the South Fork Trinity River until it intersects the Township 5 North / Township 6 North boundary, where it turns east. The closure area follows the township boundary east until it reaches the eastern boundary of the district, then turns north and follows the district boundary north until it returns to the start point at the Hoopa Reservation boundary.
