While the wildfire near Ryder Lake is now contained and roads and the Elk Mountain/Thurston Trail have reopened, residents and visitors are reminded to exercise caution as emergency crews continue to be on scene monitoring the area. As always, follow good hiking practices:

  • Let people know where you are going and when you will be back
  • Check the weather and pack accordingly
  • Bring extra water, food, and a first aid kit
