Please note that the California Dept of Forestry and Fire Prevention (CAL FIRE) has closed Boggs for several months, possibly till early fall 2016, due to post-Valley Fire hazards. We will update this site regularly to keep you posted on possible openings and forest locations that might be open to the public.
Be advised that forest management is acutely aware of the community’s desire to access the forest, and the substantial benefits that Boggs brings to the health of its visitors. CAL FIRE staff are working as quickly as resources allow to make the forest safely accessible to all. Thank you for your cooperation and compliance to keep yourself and others safe!
Please refer to the newest issue of the FOBM Quarterly for more information on the forest closure or copy and paste this URL to a new browser page:
Boggs is closed to road and trail use as well as camping due to the dangerous conditions that are present, as well as the salvage logging which will be occurring.
According to the forest manager, when Boggs is re-opened, tours will be conducted for the public to see what happened, what is left and what the forestry staff plan to do for rehabilitation.
It will look very different and will not have the same allure for quite some time, but their goal is to have a healthy diverse forest that will be more resilient to future wildfires. There may also be educational opportunities for local schools regarding rehabilitation after a destructive wildfire, and with assistance from children, youth, and the greater community to help replant some of the forest.

This is the Website of the Friends of Boggs Mountain, a volunteer non-profit whose mission is to enhance the visitor’s experience in the forest through educational, interpretive, and recreational programs, help in development of facilities, and assist with maintenance and infrastructure improvements at Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest (BMDSF). The organization cooperates with BMDSF management and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) to meet those objectives.
We hope these pages give you interesting and/or useful information about BMDSF, and encourage the public to join us and provide suggestions to promote a great forest experience here at Boggs Mountain. Enjoy the beauty of Boggs!
