Spread the word! COVID-19 trail problems

People flocking to our national forest lands for respite from Covid-19 has created new problems. Even though the Forest Service has closed most facilities, severe overcrowding of trails and improper waste disposal have caused serious hygiene and safety issues.

If you do visit the national forest, please:

  • Consider bringing trash bags with you;
  • Know what to do when restrooms are closed;
  • Be an example–learn and practice Leave No Trace principles;
  • Realize crowded conditions on your favorite hiking trail may not allow you to practice social distancing. Check here for all facility closures on our forest.
