Today, county officials announced that visitors would once again be able to access the Eastern Trailhead and parking area and the full length of trails 6 and 46.

The fire burned 51.15 acres on the southeast side of Mt. Pisgah. 

The Oregon Department of Forestry ruled the fire accidental. They said it started Aug. 15 when a county contractor was mowing to reduce invasive plant species present in the park. Mowing was allowed that day under the guidelines of the Industrial Fire Precaution Levels.
