WILDFIRE 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.
