Mt. Hood Forest Closing Due To Fire Danger

The Mt. Hood National Forest is temporarily closing to public access due to extreme fire danger.  That includes developed campgrounds, dispersed camping, day use areas, wilderness areas, and all forest roads and trails.  The closure went into effect Tuesday evening, and will be re-evaluated daily as conditions change.  People in the process of evacuating the forest are exempt from the order.  While the forest has been under fire restrictions, forest officials say they still see unattended and abandoned campfires across the forest, heightening the risk to firefighters, the public, and wildlife.  The Willamette National Forest also has a forest closure in effect.
