As ongoing efforts treat the affected area caused by the Pole Creek fire that occurred near Sisters last September, the Deschutes National Forest is changing the boundaries of the closure area to provide an accession of winter recreation opportunities. The changes are as follows:
- Portions of the Three Creek Lake Nordic trail ( Forest Service Road 1600700) will reopen to provide Nordic skiing opportunities
- The Jeff View Shelter area off of Forest Service Road 1600700 will reopen for winter use
- Most of the Three Creeks Lake area will be reopened
- Forest Service Road 1520 and portions of the Forest Service Road 1018 will also reopen
Have fun out there and be safe!
