CHICO, Calif. - Parts of Bidwell Park that were damaged from the Stoney Fire have reopened and this weekend hikers were enjoying the trails.

The Annie Bidwell and South Rim trails on the south side of upper Bidwell Park and are now open to the public.

The Stoney Fire ripped through almost 1000 acres back in July of 2018.

Although some hazardous trees have been removed, the City of Chico's Parks Division wants everyone to take caution when using the trails.

Hiker Emma Spivey said it was a good hike.  "It was intact," she said. "There wasn't anything that I noticed that would be a hazard to walk over."

Other trails like the Guardian and Blood Pin trails both received heavy damage and will remain closed until hazardous trees are cleared.
