  • Campfire Prohibitions in portions of Trinity Alps Wilderness

    Forest Order 14-19-03 is in effect which prohibits building & maintaining campfires within the Canyon Creek & Stuart Fork Watershed Prohibition Area or Alpine Lake Watershed Prohibition Area, as shown.

    In fragile alpine environments campfires can cause lasting impacts to the environment and deplete wood supplies. In these alpine environments plants and animals need what few nutrients exist, and burning dead wood takes these nutrients out of the fragile ecosystem.

    Persons with a valid California Campfire Permit may use a portable stove or lantern using gas, jellied petroleum, or pressurized liquid fuel.

    For more info, please call the Weaverville Ranger District at (530) 623-2121.
