REDDING, CA – The Bureau of Land Management on Saturday, Sept. 1 will reopen sections of the Redding-area recreation trail network that were closed because of the Carr Fire.  Some areas will remain closed until crews remove or mark hazards and complete fire suppression repairs.

The BLM is opening parts of the Sacramento River Rail Trail, the Swasey Recreation Area, Mule Mountain trails, Middle Creek and Rock Creek trails and trails along the east side of the Sacramento River.  The BLM earlier reopened the Clear Creek Greenway and Cloverdale trail networks south of Redding.

The Sacramento River Rail Trail between the Keswick Dam Trailhead and the junction near the Rock Creek Trailhead, including the Fisherman’s Trail, will reopen Saturday, Sept. 8 after completion of utility repairs.  

Officials said many trails signs are still missing due to the fire, so trail users should carry maps or have good knowledge of the area. There are still many burned and dead trees along the trails, and users should use caution in these areas.

“We are pleased to reopen these trail sections while we continue working to reopen other trails,” said Jennifer Mata, manager of the BLM Redding Field Office.  “We ask that people stay out of closed areas for their own safety.  We also ask that visitors stay on established trails and avoid short-cutting or creating new routes that could cause erosion.”

Because of continuing public safety concerns, the BLM said the following areas remain closed:

  • The Chappie-Shasta Off-Highway Vehicle Area and the Copley Mountain staging area
  • BLM-managed lands on the east side of Trinity Mountain Road
  • Areas south of the Shasta Trinity National Forest near Wild Cow Mountain
  • BLM-managed lands north of the Whiskeytown National Recreation Area
  • Lands west of the Sacramento River Rail Trail to South Fork Mountain
  • The FB Trail from the Ribbon Bridge to the junction with the Hornbeck Trail

More information is available by telephoning the Redding Field Office at 530-224-2100.
