The Forest Service announced that the Beckwourth Complex and Dixie Fire Area, Road, Trail, and Recreation Site Closure will be lifted for federally managed lands in the Plumas National Forest effective Nov. 19.
The closure was originally planned through Nov. 30, but due to the hard work of suppression repair teams, the closure can be terminated early. Forest visitors should exercise caution when entering a burned area. Some road repair operations are ongoing, and may cause travel delays. Forest conditions are dynamic, and hazards such as falling trees or rolling rocks can limit access into or out of forest areas. Some trails were impacted by fire, and may be more difficult to traverse. If you plan to enter a burned area, please be prepared for downed trees, rocks, and rough surfaces. Carry food, water, and maps, and let others know of your travel plans.
For more information about closure areas, road conditions, and recreation areas, please contact the Beckwourth Ranger District in Blairsden at (530) 836-2575, the Mt. Hough Ranger District in Quincy at (530) 283-0555, or the Feather River Ranger District in Oroville at (530) 534-6500. Some recreation sites are closed for the season.
