Visiting the Forests

Weather, trail, and road conditions can be highly dynamic and may change with little or no warning. Other changes in both natural and management conditions may also affect your visit. The Forest Service cannot foresee or control most of these changes, but we do our best to make this information available to help visitors avoid unpleasant surprises. It is your responsibility to “know before you go.” So, before your trip, check the weather, learn about trail and road conditions, and check for important notices.
