View the revised closure and map. 

Dog Creek Area remains closed.  Wilson Trail System remains closed.  (Review the map for area and trail closures).

South Fork Boise River / Anderson Ranch Reservoir Day Use Area has changes. 

See the map for areas open to day-use and areas open to overnight camping.

Spur Roads off the South Fork Boise River Road with Overnight Use allowed include the 121 -  J, K, L, M, N, O, Q, and R road spurs.

Spur Roads off the South Fork Boise River Road with Day Use only include the 121 - P, S, T, and U road spurs. The threat of a flash flood or mud slide remains due to unstable hill slopes and drainages above or directly across from these locations.  It is aggravated because there is little or no flood plain to handle a high intensity rain event which could affect the main river flows.  Even though specific sites did not burn, surrounding hazards are present.
