Walker Valley ORV Recreation Area
Walker Valley’s 36 miles of trails are closed to off road vehicles and all other recreation use.
The 36 miles of trails were closed to public access on Sunday, October 7, due to fire danger and will remain closed until Monday, October 15. The wildfire, which started Saturday, is burning in an area where a recent timber harvest took place, as well as in older standing timber and threatens the safety of those using the popular ORV trails. The fire was 50 percent contained by Sunday evening. The fire has a high potential for renewed growth because of the heavily wooded conditions and the presence of slash piles.
We appreciate patience with these closures as wildfire suppression efforts continue. The goal is to protect public and firefighter safety as fire crews continue their work. Recreation areas will re-open as soon as fire conditions allow safe return.
