Trails that reopened Friday include the North Fork, Stormy Peaks, Mummy Pass and Emmaline Lake trails, as well as land around Alexander Mountain and the CSU Mountain Campus, the Canyon Lakes Ranger District stated in a news release.

District staff and volunteers from Poudre Wilderness Volunteers and Cameron Peak Nordic Rangers continue to evaluate areas as the snow melts.

More than 120 miles of trails and 350 miles of forest service roads are within the 325-mile perimeter of the fire. The largest wildfire in state history, believed to be human-caused, was declared 100% contained on Dec. 2, 112 days after it started. Much of the burn scar remains closed.
