Shasta-Trinity NF Fenders Ferry Road Re-opening After 2012 Bagley Fire Damage Subsequent Winter Storms.

Effective today the Shasta-Trinity National Forest is excited to announce that Fenders Ferry Road (Forest Road No. 34N17) on the Shasta-Lake Ranger District is re-opened.

Posted: 12 Dec 2013
 Fenders Ferry had been closed due to damage sustained in the 2012 Bagley Fire and subsequent winter storms. The Bagley Fire Emergency Closure Order No. 14-12-02 has been amended to allow public access to part of the Bagley Fire Emergency Closure Area. 

The repair work to Fenders Ferry and the Squaw Creek Bridge has now been completed however high clearance vehicles are still recommended.
Madrone Campground has also been re-opened. Deadlun Campground Ah-Di-Na Ash Camp and Fisherman’s Loop are also all open for public use.

Fenders Ferry Road Re-Opening

All areas located in the interior of the Bagley Fire Perimeter will remain closed including any trails or roads. The area that remains closed is closed to ensure that the public does not enter into an area that has unsafe road surface and/or hazard tree conditions related to wildfire severity and storms in the affected areas of the Bagley Fire Incident.

A high volume of logging truck traffic is expected through the fall and winter of 2013. Signs have been posted on all single and two lane county roads where logging trucks are expected and use of CBs is strongly advised. Channels are posted at pertinent intersections and mile markers. If CBs cannot be used then windows should be left down to listen for oncoming traffic and speed should be reduced below the posted limit particularly around corners with a short line of sight. Extra caution is required by all motorists in the area.

Please contact the Shasta Lake Ranger Station at (530) 275-1587 or visit for more information or to view a map of the closure area and the closure order.
