Alternate route available
A temporary trail closure is in place on a 2-mile segment of the Mills Peak Trail (FS Trail #12E45) to protect trail users until active mechanical thinning operations (fuels hazard reduction) can be completed.
The closure includes a 150-foot buffer on each side of the trail segment. An alternate route is available. All national forest system roads and other highways at the perimeter of Mills Peak Trail remain open.
The closure will continue through March 31 unless work is completed at an earlier date.
People exempt from Forest Order No. 05-11-01-19-19 include people with a permit from the Forest Service specifically authorizing them to be in the trail closure area, people with a contract from the Forest Service authorizing work within the closure area to the extent authorized by the contract and, any federal, state and local officers or member of an organized rescue or firefighting force in the performance of an official duty.
For alternate route information or information about fuels reduction activities, call the Beckwourth Ranger District at 836-2575.
