QUINCY, Calif. - The U.S. Forest Service has temporarily closed the Minerva 5 Salvage Project for public safety reasons.
According to an email sent by the organization for the park, the short-term closure started on August 11 and will last until November 30, 2018.
Some people are exempt from the closure including those with permits or contracts, in addition to any federal, state, local officer or fire officials.
The Minerva 5 Salvage Project is a project with the goal of an economic recovery of the timber value lost and secondary benefits include roadside hazard tree removal and reforestation in south Quincy.
The area is known to be a trail for hunters within the Plumas National Forest, according to Lee Anne Schramel, a media contact employee from the U.S. Forest Service.
