Recent storms have triggered a mudslide on Forest Road M10 near Dixie Glade Campground. Forest officials have closed the road about a quarter-mile west of Fouts Springs.

Dixie Glade Campground and the Letts Lake area are not accessible from the east side of the forest. 

Officials ask visitors and residents to avoid traveling in the area until it can be cleared.

Unstable terrain is one of several hazards in a burned landscape.

Post-fire areas are subject to landslides, rockfall, erosion, debris flows and flooding in heavy rain, snow or wind. There are also likely multiple downed trees across roads and trails.
