Sky Islands Traverse Fires

This is the most recent Sky Islands Traverse fires, SKIT fire perimeters, hotspots and surface SKIT smoke information.

The table below shows trail fires within ~10 miles of the SKIT. The google map links show all national fires and hotspots. Fires on trail or within a mile of the trail will show red text in the table below. 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 & SKIT Smoke, National & SKIT 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.

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