  • Crews on Croatan Nearly Done Checking & Clearing Roads After Hurricane Dorian

    Crews on the Croatan National Forest are expected to complete checking and clearing of roads today and will move on to clearing downed trees from trails and cleaning up debris in campgrounds.

    Pine Cliff Road will temporarily remain closed while crews clear the horse trails. All other roads are open except those that were closed prior to Hurricane Dorian. Report downed trees on forest roads to the Croatan Ranger District office.

    Please help reduce trash on your public lands by also reporting people dumping waste. Additional Law Enforcement Officers are patrolling the forest. The penalty for dumping is up to $500 and 6 months in prison.

    There is still a risk of falling trees and limbs in reopened areas. Be aware of your surroundings. Avoid areas with leaning trees and broken, hanging limbs.
