Posted May 7, 2020: The Deschutes National Forest will be temporarily closing a section of the Dinah-Moe-Humm Trail from Forest Road 4180 west to the junction of Forest Road 500, north of Edison Butte Sno-Park for commercial thinning operations. This trail has been under snow until recently but warm temperatures have made it more visible and accessible to trail users. For the safety of the public and the contractors working in the unit, this closure will be in place 7 days a week until work is complete. Thank you for your patience and cooperation while this important restoration work is completed.
Over the past couple of years, over 100,000 acres of hazardous fuels treatment has been completed in the West Bend Project area. The West Bend Project is designed to restore forest health while reducing the risk of high severity wildfire to our local community.
