This order is put into effect due to extreme wildland fire conditions and the immediate threat to high value private property, degradation of watershed, and the loss of important resources values resulting from wildland fires in the area. The closure is also necessary to protect fragile slopes already burned from erosion and damage by motorized vehicles while rehabilitation actions are underway.

Violations of this closure are punishable by a fine up to $100,000 and/or imprisonment not to exceed 12 months as provided in 43 CFR 8360.
