Spence Mountain Fire Update 7/20/20

After a survey of the trail damage today there are several areas of fairly extensive damage on South Ridge Tr that will need to be addressed in the following weeks. We will likely need to wait until mop-up activities are completed before we can really start rehabbing the trail as the trail is intimately associated with the fire line and equipment is still moving along those lines. Some of the damage is too much for a hand crew to fix (i.e. very large rocks on the trail) and will have to be addressed by the heavy equipment available to the fire fighters. The issues with Queen of the Lake is mainly with rockfalls and falling timber. It is unclear how long it will take before QOTL is safe for public use. We will post updates as information becomes available.
