Medicine Bow National Forest Urges Visitor Safety

(Courtesy National Forest Service)

A spokesman for the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest is reminding spring visitors  to take a few precautions when they visit. Larry Sandoval says one big concern is the large number of trees that have been killed by the Mountain Pine Beetle infestation. He says such trees are prone to falling unexpectedly, and are especially dangerous on windy days. He urges visitors to check the weather forecast and avoid heavily wooded areas on windy days.

Sandoval also reminds visitors that it is illegal to drive motor vehicles off of designated roads and trails. He says the fines for doing so start at $75 and can be higher in cases of severe off-road damage.
