Magic Feather Prescribed Burn Delayed Until Mid-June
Due to currently wet conditions and additional precipitation in the forecast, the Magic Feather Prescribed Burn is likely delayed until mid-June to allow fuels to dry in order to meet the objectives of the prescribed burn.
Firefighters on the Roosevelt National Forest will continue monitoring local conditions and forecasts at the Magic Feather Prescribed Burn, located south and southeast of Red Feather Lakes, to determine when burning can resume. In May 2023, 200 acres were successfully burned, all north of County Road 74E (Red Feather Lakes Road).
The trail system in the Mount Margaret, Molly Lake, Elkhorn and Lady Moon area is open until burning resumes.
This prescribed burn is part of the overall strategy on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests to address the Wildfire Crisis.
