Area Around Emigrant Fire Reopened

Emigrant Fire

The closure of forest land in the vicinity of the Emigrant Fire above Paradise Valley has been lifted now, but forest officials are urging caution by anyone going into that area.  Gallatin National Forest Spokesperson Marna Daley says people will experience a different landscape than what they enjoyed last spring.  The Emigrant Fire affected the road and trails in the burned area and created additional safety concerns for people to be aware of.  Visitors can expect rolling boulders and rock slides, falling trees, unstable or hollow stumps, changed water crossings in this and other burned areas.  Repair and rehabilitation work, including tread work, seeding, fencing, and bridge repair/reconstruction are scheduled for this coming spring and summer.  Before the fire was controlled, it had involved 10,855 acres on the mountainside just south of Emigrant Peak.
