Forest Service Begins Dixie Fire Restoration Work at Canyon Dam

The Lassen National Forest has begun the Boardwalk Service Contract timber removal project in the vicinity of the Canyon Dam boat launch on the south end of Lake Almanor, with June 1st, 2023, as the expected completion date.

Impacts may include a temporary trail closure for approximately 1.5 miles of the Lake Almanor Recreation Trail in the Canyon Dam area.

Operations should not impact public access to the boat launch; however, visitors are advised to be aware of extra vehicle traffic and heavy equipment for cutting, processing, and decking of cut timber in the area.

Please proceed with caution as you travel on the road toward the ramp.

Wintery and snowy conditions persist on the Lake Almanor Recreation Trail, but as weather
conditions become hotter and drier, visitors wanting to hike the trail may access it at USFS Dyer View or PG&E Rocky Point.

Burned timber and deep root holes in this area create hazard trees and safety concerns for the public. The removal of these fire-killed trees helps protect visitors and reduce future fuel loadings.

“This project is the first step to restoring recreation opportunities in the Canyon Dam area,” says Russell Nickerson, District Ranger of the Almanor Ranger District. “As we continue
our reforestation efforts, future operations will include planting trees and repairing facilities in the area.”

For additional questions on this ongoing project, you can reach the Almanor Ranger District
office at 530-258-2141.
