“We continue to recommend you recreate locally,” said Acting Forest Supervisor Kris Sexton. “All visitors should practice self-sufficiency during visits to national forests. Recreating responsibly will help ensure access to recreational facilities, services and opportunities continues.”

Responsible recreation practices include:

  • Maintain at least six feet distancing from others.
  • Do not gather in groups and please follow the latest guidance from officials.
  • Alert other trail users of your presence and step aside to let others pass.
  • Pack out your trash and leave with everything brought in.
  • Services may not be available, please plan accordingly.

Pack it in, pack it out.
