Transfer Trail reopens

Transfer Trail has been reopened by White River National Forest Supervisor Martha Ketelle.

“The Coal Seam Fire no longer presents a danger to the stretch of road that was closed,” said Ketelle. “We have also cut down all of the hazardous dead trees that were near the road.”

Several trails on the forest still remain closed to the public. Spring Creek #2068, Boiler Creek #1843 and east Elk #1841 are not expected to reopen until next summer. Severe fire damage along these trails has left numerous hazards, including unstable trees and debris that the Forest Service won’t be able to work on until the next field season.
