Halsey National Forest On The Road To Recovery

Posted: Updated:

The Bessey Ranger District in the Halsey National Forest is back in business after over 1,000 acres were burned in a wildfire in July.

The U.S. Forest Service says roadways, trails and campgrounds are all back in service although the condition of the recovering forest is still fragile.

The fire was started by lightning strike and the lack of rain that the forest has seen since then has led to a slow recovery. Ranger Tim Buskirk cautions visitors to stay on the trails and reminds everyone that fire restrictions are still in place which include a ban on campfires.
