With the arrival of the first significant storm the National Park Service closed many of its trails and roads that were impacted by this summers wildfires. Over 6,244 acres burned on the rugged slopes of Shasta Bally in highly erosive soils. The potential for large scale mudslides and debris flow is high.
These areas will be evaluated on a regular basis, but visitors should expect these closures to remain in effect during the wet season.
