Mendocino National Forest issues update on recreation closures

MENDOCINO NATIONAL FOREST, Calif. – The Mendocino National Forest is part of the USDA Forest Service’s Pacific Southwest Region. On March 25, 2020, Regional Forester Randy Moore issued a closure order for all developed recreation sites across all National Forests in the region.

The USDA Forest Service’s highest priority is ensuring our employees and visitors remain safe as we support mission-critical functions for the people and communities we serve.

This closure order is effective through April 30. If you do plan on visiting the Mendocino National Forest please be aware that:

– No trash removal is currently offered, please pack out all trash and waste.
– All toilet facilities are currently closed, please plan accordingly.
– Avoid high-risk activities, law enforcement and search and rescue operations may be limited.
– If an area is crowded, please search for a less-occupied location.

Closing any site for any reason is not one forest officials take lightly, but protecting visitors and employees remains the highest priority.

Forest officials said they are working with state and local partners to determine the best path forward to safely reopening closed sites.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Please remember that OHV trails are closed effective April 17, 2020, under Forest Order 08-20-03.
