Riverside Forest Health Treatment

Project summary

Between fall 2024 and spring 2025, Parks will complete a 300-acre forest health treatment in the 7 Mile Area of Riverside State Park. Intermittent trail closures will occur within the project area during this time. To promote a healthy and resilient forest, crews will work on removing wildfire fuels and low vigor trees.


The long-term benefits of thinning vegetation in a dense forest includes reducing wildfire risk and limiting damage to existing trails. It also protects and supports old growth trees and sensitive species and habitats.
