Sinks Canyon State Park just suffered from a fire that burned much of the south facing slopes of the canyon. The north facing slopes were not involved. Initially this may cause some to avoid visiting the area, but that would be a mistake. All the visitor facilities (visitor center, the sinks, the rise, campgrounds, etc.), are all intact and will re-open. The trails along the river were not impacted by the fire. Visiting the canyon now is a great opportunity to see the impact of wildland fires, marvel at the efforts to control them and watch natural forces at work. It will be fascinating to watch the burned areas regenerate over the next couple of years.
