Campfires, off-highway vehicles restricted

Because of high fire danger in the Mt. Hood National Forest, all campfires and charcoal fires have been banned except in fire rings of designated campgrounds.

All motorized vehicles, including off-highway vehicles, will also be prohibited from going off-road or using any national forest system trails.

In addition, smoking is restricted. Visit the Mt. Hood National Forest website, fs.fed.us/r6/mthood, for more information.

If campers have a fire within a designated campground, they are encouraged to keep fires small. All fires must be attended at all times and drowned with water, stirred, and be cold to the touch before being left unattended.
