Station Closure Update
By Coby King
The Forest Service website has a much better map than its previous version. It can be viewed here: http://maps.fs.fed.us/stationfire/ and then zooming in on the map on the right. Itís not a 7.5 minute map, but it has enough detail and resolution to be useful.
The following peaks are within the current Station Fire closure area:
- Mt. McKinley (just inside the closure area, which currently runs along Yerba Buena Trail 13W02 at the point when it is closest to the peak)
- Brown Mountain
- Mendenhall Peak
- Newcomb Peak
- Mt. Yale
The detailed description of the current closure area can be found here:
