ASHLAND, Ore. — Ashland will be in a veritable 'ring of fire' Monday and Tuesday (May 14-15), as personnel conduct controlled burns in nearby forestlands, according to a statement from the City. A number of trails and several roads will be closed:

CLOSED TRAILS
BTI
Bandersnatch
Red Queen
Alice in Wonderland
Gryphon
Jub Jub
Snark
Waterline
Jabberwocky
Fell on Knee (may be open Tuesday)
Wonder (may be open Tuesday)

CLOSED ROADS
West side 2060/Ashland Loop, 1.5 miles from end of Granite St.
East side 2060/Ashland Loop, just above Morton St.

Hitt Rd. area trails, Toothpick, Catwalk, anything above 4 Corners, Caterpillar/Lizard, and Lewis Loops will all remain open. Eastside downhill traffic at White Rabbit will have to stay on the road—so the City asks that the public watch for vehicle traffic and go slowly.

These burns come in two varieties—those that are a part of the Ashland Forest Resiliency (AFR) project, and burns on City of Ashland land. To learn more about AFR or the controlled burn process, you can visit them here.
