Several trails will be closed in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness due to wildfires in the area.

Three fires — the Rush Creek, Vinegar and Club fires — are all burning in the area as hot, dry weather is expected in the coming days. Storms this week brought rain that slowed fire growth but conditions are dry with high fire danger.

The U.S. Forest Service announced the following trail closures will go into effect for the safety of the public and firefighters:

  • Silver Creek Trail (NFST #010) and South Fork Rush Creek Trail (NFST #058) are closed until October 1, 2021.
  • All of Coyote Spring/Spring Creek Trail (NFST #044), Rush Creek Trail (NFST #057), and Telephone Creek Trail (NFST #060) are closed until October 1, 2021.
