Shenandoah National Park has announced that all trails around Rapidan Camp have reopened.

These areas were previously closed due to the Quaker Run Fire and the hazard of trees that had been weakened by the wildfire.

On November 17th, the Quaker Run Fire was declared 100% contained.

The wildfire affected 3,937 acres on private, state, and federal lands.

About 700 acres were within Shenandoah’s boundary.

Shenandoah’s complete fire ban remains in effect.

All open-air fires are prohibited, including in picnic areas and campgrounds.
