The Santa Fe National Forest is opening designated areas of the Las Conchas burn area, to include certain roads and trails, as well as lifting the closure order for all of the Pacheco burn scar area, effective Monday at 8 a.m.
In the Las Conchas burn area, motor vehicles may travel on designated open roads only. Pedestrians and non-motorized vehicle users may travel throughout the newly open areas.
All prior restrictions are lifted in the Espanola Ranger District portion of the burn area. On the Jemez Ranger District, where the wildfire burned the hottest, roads are open that have been assessed for public health and safety hazards.
The Pacheco burn area is open for pedestrian and non-motorized use, but caution is advised.
