Rist Canyon Fire
Status: ApprovedComments: It appears that Route A will go through the RCVFD response area. Please remind riders that for much of this route through Stove Prairie and Rist Canyon they will not have cell service to access emergency services. Also, in May, the road is likely to still be quite sandy from winter snows so conditions could be tricky for motorcyclists. Also, there should be postings ahead of time so bicyclists and motorists can chose to avoid all the motorcycles in the canyon that day.
