Due to the severity of the massive fires burning in New Mexico the forests and state parks are closed to any and all entrance and activities. No hiking, no camping, no fishing: it is not safe at this time.
This includes the Carson National Forest and Cimarron Canyon State Park. Eagle Nest Lake State Park is open for bank fishing only.
During this ban, it is unlawful to enter.
Please be patient and cautious on the roads in and around Angel Fire. There are thousands of firefighters here with their extremely large firefighting vehicles. These are absolutely necessary for the continued fight to gain control of the Hermits Peak/Calf Canyon Fire. We welcome and appreciate them. Beginning today there will be 200 large logging trucks traveling in and out of Angel Fire up to the west ridge through some residential areas, to load and remove all of the downed trees from the dozer lines they are building to protect us from the fire. The large logging trucks will also be traveling in the Taos Canyon, delivering the logs to sawmills.
Please BE PATIENT! Plan a little extra time to get from one location to another. Do not be the cause of chaos and accidents on our roadways. Add in the extra vehicles from incoming tourists on the roads, it will be congested. Plan ahead and keep calm!
Mayor, Village of Angel Fire
