But when I was almost back to the trailhead, I noticed the Dry Creek trail was all taped off with signs saying, "Closed to public entry, wildfire area."
Searched the twitters and found this
It doesn't sound like too big a deal, given that I saw no further evidence of fire or fire crews as I was leaving, but might want to check first if you were planning on heading that way.A small ¾ acre #fire is burning just east of Trapper Creek Wilderness & is thought to be caused by lightning & may have been smoldering for a while. @forestservice fire crews are on-site. Dry Creek Trail is temporarily closed to the public for #safety. Please avoid the area.
