Recreation Conditions Report

 Area Name Status Area Conditions
Chimney Camp Trail #1279 Closed to Visitor 10/17/2014: Chimney Camp Trail Temporarily Closed Due to Discovery of Sudden Oak Death Disease in Wheeler Creek Area. The trail closure has been extended through September 30, 2015 to allow for essential monitoring for the ramorum pathogen and additional diseased trees prior to reopening the trail. Contact Gold Beach Ranger District for more information (541) 247 3600.
Gold Beach Ranger District    Visitors to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness should be advised that trail conditions may vary, depending on the level of maintenance performed in the years after the 2002 Biscuit and 2017 Chetco Bar Fires. Due to the large scale of these fires, and the rugged and remote conditions in the Kalmiopsis, trail work, while ongoing, has not been performed on all the trails within the fire perimeters. Visitors may find downed trees across the trail, dense vegetation where shrubs have grown in after the fire, and unmarked trail junctions in some places. Please check with the Gold Beach or Wild Rivers Ranger Districts before your visit for trail conditions. Additionally, you can visit the Siskiyou Mountain Club's page, a local group who performs much of the trail maintenance in wilderness areas.
High Cascades Ranger District    The winter of 2015-2016 resulted in a large number of areas of windfall on the High Cascades Ranger District; many trails have been reported as having trees across them. Trails are being cleared as crews can get to them, but this is a long process due to the large number of trees and the incredibly lengths of trails impacted by this windfall. Please report areas where trails are impassable when you find them!
Japanese Bombing Site Trail #1118 Open to Visitor
