Current Park Fires

Big Meadows Fire
The Big Meadows Fire was started by lightning on June 10, 2013. It's located in a relatively remote area on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park. Trail closures have been lifted, although the trail does cross one mile of burn area and two mud slide areas. For more information about the Big Meadows Fire, click here.

Fern Lake Fire
An infrared flight over Forest Canyon in Rocky Mountain National Park has confirmed that the Fern Lake Fire is officially out. The Fern Lake Fire started in Rocky Mountain National Park from an illegal campfire on October 9, 2012, in steep and rugged Forest Canyon. Firefighters from across the country battled the fire for two months. Park fire managers knew from the beginning this fire was going to be a long-term event. There was limited opportunity to fight the fire directly because of high winds, steep terrain, and beetle-killed trees. Click here for more information on the Fern Lake Fire.
