9/18/21 – The Forest Service has lifted the fire ban in the Superior National Forest, including the BWCA wilderness. Thanks to some recent rains, cooler temps, and shorter days the fire danger has lessened. We are still experiencing a severe drought so while fire conditions have calmed down, things are still pretty dry with low water levels. We so appreciate everyone’s diligence in keeping our forests and homes safe during this extreme year!
Even though the fire ban has been lifted, there is still a closure area within the BWCA. This means that the area shown on the map below is closed to all travel, including day-use. If you have any routing questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
