The North Umpqua Trail (NUT) is a 79-mile single-track trail that begins in the Mt. Thielsen Wilderness and follows the North Umpqua River toward the community of Glide.
The 2020 Archie Creek Fire and the 2021 Jack Fire resulted in the closure of 30 miles of the NUT. Currently, the USFS and BLM have reopened short segments, but most of these burned trail miles remain closed due to downed trees, damaged tread, landslides, burned bridges, and other hazards.
The scope of the problem is quite large, but the NFF and the USFS are committed to working together and with other partners to restore and reopen this popular National Recreation Trail.
