Whenever possible, recreate locally. Visitors should practice self-sufficiency when visiting national forests and come prepared with all the essentials needed for a day trip, including food, emergency supplies and the ability to pack-out trash. Remember to recreate responsibly by keeping the following in mind:

  • Maintaining at least six feet distancing from others
  • Do not gather in groups and follow the latest guidance from officials
  • Communicate with others as you pass. Alert trail users of your presence and step aside to let others pass
  • Pack out your trash and leave with everything you bring in and use.

Some services may not be available, so please plan accordingly.
