WILLOWS, Calif; Feb. 22, 2016 – Storms packing high winds and rain hit the Mendocino National Forest over the weekend causing potential problems in various areas of the forest. In addition to the closure at the Red Bluff Recreation Area and OHV trail closures on the Upper Lake and Grindstone ranger districts, the public is advised that the following hazards may exist: unstable roads due to saturated soil, blocked roads from downed trees, plugged culverts, deep ruts and running water.

Frank Aebly, Acting Mendocino National Forest Supervisor says, “We are striving to provide as much information as possible about current conditions. Please be aware, that there may be hazards that have not been identified yet as some areas are unsafe for employees to enter.” Visitors are encouraged to call ahead before traveling to the forest. Aebly adds that additional closures may be implemented in the coming days.

For those enthusiastic folks starting to think about camping, hiking and visiting the forest, the typical camping season is May through November. However, this has been a very different precipitation year. It is likely that new records of precipitation may be reached while just three years ago, near record or record low precipitation was recorded. For example, only 17.9 inches of precipitation was recorded at Alder Springs from 10/1/13 to 9/30/14, and this year over 41 inches has fallen in this area so far.

Please continue to check the forest website for more information as there are six to eight weeks of winter precipitation left. In addition, the current road report is posted at the bottom of the forest website home page. https://www.fs.usda.gov/mendocino/
