Appalachian Trail Fires - 2021

These are the most recent Appalachian Trail fires, AT fire perimeters, hotspots and surface AT smoke information.

The table below shows trail fires within ~10 miles of the AT. Fires on trail or within a mile of the trail will show red text. If a fire perimeter intersects the trail the table will show start/end trail mile, first encounter to last encounter, the entire segment is not necessarily burned.

View google maps of National & AT Smoke, National & AT Fires/Perimeters or both layers together. Fires/Perimeters are updated every 4 hours, surface smoke is updated hourly. A Fire weather map showing red flag warnings, fire weather watches, etc, is also available. A 4 hour heat map of Air Quality Index is also available.

Surface smoke data and fire weather is from NOAA, fires/perimeters are from National Interagency Fire Center and hot spots are from NASA.
