Moab's Whole Enchilada Trail Closed by Pack Creek Fire

Jun 15, 2021 at 11:33
by Sarah Moore  



The Pack Creek Fire that started on June 9 in due to an abandoned campfire has now grown to 8,435 acres and has cut off access to the Whole Enchilada, a classic mountain biking trail in the La Sal Mountains north of Moab in Utah.

There are 11 helicopters, 21 engines, and 11 crews with a total of 426 personal currently fighting the blaze. At this time, Utah Wildfire says that the fire is 16% contained. The latest details on the fire can be found on the government website here. The Trailforks team has overlaid the latest perimeter update of the fire onto the Trailforks map so you can see exactly where the fire currently is in relation to Burro Pass and the Whole Enchilada.

You can see an interactive version of this polygon on Trailforks here.

From what we can see in the latest update, the fire is not currently on Burro Pass, but access to the trail is closed and other trails nearby have been impacted.

bigquotesThe Pack Creek Fire is currently active. Firefighters are making good containment progress while creating control lines on the fire's perimeter to mitigate fire spread to residential areas and to reduce the likelihood of more fire growth.

An excessive heat warning weather forecast is currently in place surrounding the fire area. Extreme fire danger conditions are expected to remain in place for several days.

The steep, rocky terrain where the fire is burning presents special challenges to crews working for containment.
Utah Wildfire


Evacuation Orders are in effect for structures in Blue Lake, Dark Canyon and Upper Pack Creek (above the U.S Forest Service Boundary) as the fire is currently active in these areas. Homes in the lower section of Pack Creek were lifted at 6 a.m. Sunday, allowing residents of this foothills community to return to their homes for the first time since Wednesday. La Sal Mountain areas, road and trail closures on all public lands surrounding the fire area remains in place.

We wish the firefighters battling the blaze the best of luck and hope to be able to ride the classic trail once again.


You can keep an eye on the fire's progress and the latest area and road closures here.

 That’s so sad! I rode there last month. Hurts my heart with the picture with those wildflowers and the smoke in the background
“An abandoned campfire”. SERIOUSLY?! In that area?! In extreme drought conditions?! Reminds me of what some Yosemite park ranger said regarding designing bear-proof trash cans. Problem is, there is considerable overlap between the intelligence of the smartest wildlife and the dumbest tourists. Facepalm Madder Really Mad

 @kusa: smoking a cig and biking is idiotic, sure....but simply smoking is no more dangerous than anything else you do. It comes down to the care the individuals put in to handling it. I mean, I am from that area. it's not a pile of cotton balls soaked in gasoline or anything. just be smart.

if you told me you watched them flick butts into the brush, sure.

 Here comes my down votes: @blowmyfuse: when I smoked I always field stripped. Every butt was pocketed until I could safely dispose of it. Today’s mass produced cigarettes go out while you smoke them because of changes made by Obama era legislation that made cigarettes more fire safe. Not every smoker is careless. I also drink responsibly.

The last thing we need is more divisiveness or projecting stereotypes on to an entire group of people. I think there’s even a term for that type of thinking…

 Hey folks - just remember that animals lost their lives and the places they call home, people have lost their homes, trees and flowers have been torched, our watershed has been compromised because of this fire. This is a beloved mountain range for the community of Moab. I know that it sucks to not be able to ride this trail for quite some time this summer but this fire has had a major impact on all of us in Moab. We need a fire ban all across the West since most places are in severe drought.

 @conoat: Anyone who has been to that area knows it is a desert and crazy hot/dry in summer. These mountains are pretty much the only thing with some semblance of water, dirt, snow, loam, leafy/nice vegetation, and elevation as others know it.

 @conoat: This Brit doesn't understand wildfires... not incredibly surprising. The West actually is in need of a few fires here and there to clear decades of brush, but, it's best to let these occur of natural causes instead of keeping our few thousand wildland firefighters spread thin across the country fighting dumb fires caused by people. A natural fire, caused by lightning, wouldn't have occurred here because this area gets like no f-ing precipitation, so like no thunderstorms this time of year. Bit of a void argument.

 I know the Enchilada is the big draw these days, but the fire has already burned other trails. Moonlight Meadows in right there in the middle, it was part of the route you'd use to loop the Enchilada. Really beautiful area. Gone.

Maybe put on a sweatshirt next time you get chilly when the temp dip to 70º at night.

 Honestly we're getting to a point in the American West where campfires should be banned from Memorial Day to Labor Day at least. There's always a fire ban in the summer in Colorado, and with the amount of tourists we have it's just not worth it. I remember talking to rangers and firefighters in Breckenridge after the Peak 9 Fire a few years ago and they were just so frustrated with visitors asking whether they can have a campfire. Surely the fire ban doesn't mean here! What if I just have a little fire? And this was after a large fire burned right outside of a major town. Our current regulations aren't working, so since people clearly can't be responsible on their own we need different regulations.

 But its not camping without a campfire. (in the whiniest voice you can imagine)

Seriously, I was camping above Ned this weekend where the temps were in the 50s at night and the wind was whipping at 20mph in the evenings

 One of my favorite areas burned in June 2018 from an ember from a train. While the trail is not gone, it is forever changed. Previously shaded lush areas with hero dirt for weeks after a rainfall has become a hot sunny area with moon dust and aspen saplings bashing your bars. Also monsoon season wiped out major sections of trail and if it wasn't for the dirt bikers in the area would have been unrideable for years. Trails can come back, but appreciate what you have now.

Most conifers NEED fire to reproduce. The issues aren't with dry(the natural state of the areas we speak of) forests, it's with government treatment of those forests. this is an issue 70 years in the making, and hilariously no one wants to blame government missmanagement, but instead the global warming boogieman and give the goverment MORE power. right! give the people that made the f*cking mistake, more of your money to "fix" it.

 Can we just ban (wood) camp fires already? Obviously, people dont know how to put them out and it continues to ruin peoples lives. In Colorado, I find camp fires still burning the next morning with nobody around all the time.

 Got a propane fire pit from Lowes spring 2020 for about $120. Love that thing and it's been getting tons of year round use. We use it when there isn't a fire ban even, because it sucks when the wind shifts and you get a face full of smoke and embers burning holes in your clothing. We also don't hang out around the fire much, and so the propane fire is great to turn it on when you want the fire and off when you want to go to sleep, go to town, go for a ride etc. Don't have to deal with fire wood, transporting it, splitting it, buying it local, etc. Don't have to deal with the mess of charred fire pit and dogs or kids around hot fire rings and embers. I know people that should know better, but for whatever reason they still feel like the need to make a bonfire at 9am on an 80 degree day, because "camping".

We have the technology to do better, it's just nostalgia holding us back.

my point was that in most of these places, open campfires are already prohibited, and the 1% of morons that don't listen ruin it for 100% of us. So simply telling people not to do something with threat of punitive damage, clearly isn't effective. Nobody said repeal, but acting like it's a long term solution just naïve.

 We just had to put out an active and abandoned camp fire in super high-risk zone (windy and covered in deadfall) the other day. The level of ignorance and irresponsibility is out of control. I support what Crested Butte is doing even though it shuts down some of my favorite places to ride from camp. I hope the Front Range and other choice van-life/Jeep-life spots follow CB's lead and start shutting down heavily abused dispersed camping areas... This is about stewardship, responsibility, and preservation of the land we get to use to pursue our passion.

 @Lemmyschild: I'm not ignoring anyone, I'm just saying that the laws exist, and we are still facing the problem, which may suggest that the law isn't an adequate response. It's pretty archaic to just see something we don't like and make it illegal, it doesn't address the deeper problem. Case in point, 1 person having a wildfire will negate the 1000 people that camped without. So if all it takes is 1 person there is no conceivable way of completely preventing fires with judicial precautions, it has to be something else. idk what, but I do know that more laws and blaming global warming won't help.

 I used to love riding trails in September - cooler, fewer people, often great trail conditions. With the increase in wildfires in the western US I am now trying to get as much riding in before the fire season because by September things are burned or smoke in the air makes the trails un-rideable from a lung health standpoint. More and larger fires is a disaster for outdoor recreation.

 Anyone know of any local organizations we can donate to to help members of the community impacted or firefighting effort?

 Now that the fire is a Type 2 incident, donations are no longer accepted at the Command Center. However, Moab Valley Fire Department will gladly accept donations. We are currently well-stocked on snacks and water supplies. If you would like to contribute a monetary donation, you can drop it off at Station 1, 45 South 100 East. An account has also been set up at Desert Rivers Credit Union under the Moab Valley Fire Donation Account. In full transparency, money donated will be used to provide updated personal protective gear to our volunteers so they remain safe while working hard to keep our community safe. Donations will go directly to benefit our volunteers. Moab Valley Fire personnel continue to be volunteers dedicated to keeping our community safe. In addition to being on the Pack Creek Fire, MVFD is also responding to other calls in the community and will continue to balance District protection with Wild Land Fire mitigation.

 @cgreaseman: they almost never find out who actually caused it. Almost impossible to tell unless there were direct witnesses.

 @rzicc: I could’ve sworn that little starting climb was at like 10k, 11k…took me five minutes to catch my breath at the top.
Whatever.
I’m sorry for the Moabians who will miss these trails!
