San Juan National Forest Closure Info, Burro and 416 Fire Updates (June 11th, 2:00pm)
The San Juan National Forest plans to implement a forest-wide closure on Tuesday because of dangerous fire conditions. The 416 Fire north of Durango was at more than 22,000 acres and the nearby Burro Fire was at more than 1,500 acres as of Monday morning. The closure will prohibit entry into the national forest and means that campgrounds, day use areas, roads, and trails will be closed, and that hiking, camping, and other recreational activities are prohibited. The McPhee boat ramp and marina will likely remain open but no shoreline use will be allowed.
