The Town has moved into Stage 1 fire restrictions, along with the County and U.S. Forest Service.
Despite periods of rain, it's still very dry in Summit County. Fire danger typically increases in early fall until there is permanent snow on the ground. As vegetation dries out and turns brown and humidity falls, there's a continued concern for wildfires.
Please be smart, be safe, and help protect Breckenridge from wildfires.
You may have noticed that the fire danger in Summit County is "VERY HIGH." While it's always illegal to have an open fire in Breckenridge town limits, we ask those using campfires in the surrounding area to be smart, safe, and, ideally, refrain from any fires.
The weather is beautiful, the leaves are changing, and everyone's out to enjoy our trails before winter rolls around. Now's a good time to brush up on trail etiquette and learn about our summer trail builds.
Remember to always respect the trail and other users!
