check mapsWILDFIRE NOTE: Two thirds of the Plumas National Forest has burnt in recent years with huge and destructive wildland fires. Some areas are closed, due to fire damage. Expect debris in roadways, detours, bleak scenery and even dead trees falling.

The 2020 #BearFire #NorthComplex and the 2021 #DixieFire destroyed historic buildings, fire lookouts, old cabins, residential houses, small towns and rural communities; plus old growth forests and unimaginable numbers of wildlife. Many roads, trails and campgrounds are closed to the public; while reforestation may take many decades, if not a century.

CREEK FIRE 2020: Much of the Sierra National Forest was badly burned in a recent wildfire, but this Dinkey Creek area was spared. The huge fire moved the other direction – from Shaver Lake north and then eastward.

That means this Dinkey Creek Area may become more popular, along with high elevation lakes – Courtright and Wishon Reservoirs – now that this the only unburnt region around.

At least the nearby Sequoia trees in the McKinley Grove didn’t go up in flames.

NOTE: Much of the Sierra National Forest may be closed to the public (for years) due to forest hazards, loggers working, and general fire cleanup. Contact the local USFS Ranger station at Tollhouse to find out what areas are indeed open.
