The Alaska Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation has lifted access restrictions in the Chena River State Recreation Area – with the exception of the backcountry in close proximity to the fire. The recreation area is now open from Mile 27 to 39 of the Chena Hot Springs Road. The backcountry area that remains closed includes Granite Tors, Mist Creek, and South Fork Trails. The closure will remain in place until fire-related public safety concerns are no longer an issue. The Division of Parks will provide an update when additional areas reopen.
