Mendocino National Forest opens more developed campgrounds and trailheads

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA — Mendocino National Forest opened several developed recreational campgrounds and trailheads to the public on Feb. 16, ahead of the Presidents Day weekend.

Current information on campgrounds and trailheads can be found on the forest website.

Several campgrounds and trailheads identified in Forest Order 08-22-01 remain closed due to safety hazards from the 2018 Ranch fire and 2020 August Complex.

These recreation sites remain closed to the public:

• Forest Trail No. 85463;
• Cedar Camp Campground;
• Copper Butte Trailhead;
• Hammerhorn Campground;
• Kingsley Glade Campground;
• Lower Nye Campground;
• Plaskett Meadows Campground;
• Smokehouse Ridge Trailhead;
• Soldier Ridge Trailhead;
• Sugar Springs Campground;
• Sugarfoot Campground;
• West Crocket Trailhead;
• West Crocket Campground.

Forest officials remind visitors to continue recreating responsibly.

“We want visitors to have fun, but we ask everyone to make smart decisions,” said Mendocino National Forest Supervisor Ann Carlson.

“Let someone know where you’re going,” Carlson said. “Bring extra supplies and pack out your trash. It’s also a good idea to carry a satellite phone in case of an emergency. Downed trees and falling limbs continue to be a hazard on the forest. Visitors should bring a chainsaw and plan for alternate routes in case roads become impassable.”
