LAKEVIEW, Ore. – Trails and roads once closed by the Blanket Creek and North Pelican Fires are once again reopen. The reopening comes to areas on the Klamath Falls Ranger District of the Fremont-Winema National Forest.

“Because of the hazardous conditions created by these wildfires, it was imperative to restrict public access to those areas,” said Klamath District Ranger Heather Berg. “Some smoke or burning roots may still be visible, but we’re confident these hot spots will not threaten the fire perimeters. When traveling through recently burned areas, take great care to be aware of tree snags, debris, stump holes, and possibly flash flooding during heavy rains.”

The closures began in late September where much of the surrounding areas were limited to restricted access. Now all trails and roads are open for public use.
