Cimarron National Grassland Sites Reopen

KSCB News - April 12, 2012 6:01 am

ELKHART, Kan. (AP) – Several popular recreation areas in the

Cimarron National Grassland in southwestern Kansas have reopened to

the public, nearly a year after a fire burned thousands of acres.

But the U.S. Forest Service says the campground at the Cimarron

Recreation Area will remain closed until rebuilding is complete.

The Forest Service said Wednesday it has reopened Cimarron River

Corridor, Turkey Trail, River Trail, Race Track, Mallard Pond,

Wilburton Pond and the Cimarron Recreation Area itself.

More than 19,000 acres of public land and private pasture within

the 108,000-acre Cimarron National Grassland burned last May in

what became known as the Tunner Fire.
