Malheur National Forest officials have lifted the Parish Cabin Fire area closure.
However, for public safety, two roads within the Parish Cabin fire boundary will remain closed to motorized traffic: Forest Service Road 1530-065 (past the junction with FR 1530-482) and Forest Service Road 1640-098 (beyond a point 1.3 miles from FR1640).
Off-road motorized travel within the fire area remains prohibited.
In November 2005, the U.S. Forest Service published the “Final Travel Management Rule,” which directs all National Forests to designate a system of roads, trails and areas for motorized vehicle use. The Malheur National Forest currently has about 6,000 miles of roads and trails available for motorized vehicle use.

The forest received nearly $28 million through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which is providing an opportunity to make a difference in our communities and lands we manage.
