Due to extreme fire activity, and to protect public health and safety, San Bernardino National Forest officials are implementing a forest closure, effective October 23, 2007. The closure prohibits public entry to the forest, with few exceptions, and will last until the extreme conditions subside.

The few exceptions to the closure allow access to the Serrano Campground, the Alpine Pedal Path and the Juniper Point Parking Area. Access to these sites is deemed safe, but visitors must remain vigilant and tend to current fire restrictions, including no smoking or no wood or charcoal fires anywhere on the forest.

Organizations holding special use permits for sanctioned activities within the forest are also exempt from this order, including recreational residences and organizational camps, but occupants must remain within the permit boundaries.

While the closure is in effect, going into or being upon National Forest System lands, roads, or trails within the San Bernardino National Forest is not allowed. The closure will affect the use of all national forest recreational facilities, roads and hiking trails. Violators are subject to fines and/or imprisonment.

County roads and state highways may be affected by fire activity but are not included in this forest closure. Drivers are urged to seek information about closures, be aware of fire activity in the area and to use extreme caution.

For further information about the closure or fires currently burning on the San Bernardino National Forest, contact the Fire Information Center at 909-383-5688.

Angeles National Forest Emergency Fire Closure

As a result of extreme fire activity, and to protect public health and safety, Angeles National Forest officials have implemented a forest closure, effective October 23, 2007. The closure will last until the extreme conditions subside. Individuals or organizations holding special use permits for sanctioned activities within the Forest are exempt from this order.

Due to Fire Activity, the Cleveland National Forest is CLOSED to the public and all activity until further notice.

Emergency Closure of Los Padres National Forest

In conjunction with the Cleveland, San Bernardino, and Angeles National Forest, Los Padres National Forest Supervisor Peggy Hernandez today announced, that as a result of current extreme fire activity in the Southern California Province, very low fuel moisture, and fire suppression resources being stretched to the limit, an emergency closure of the entire Los Padres National Forest. Supervisor Hernandez stated that the closure, which is effective as of today, is necessary in order to protect public health and safety, and will be in effect until extreme fire and weather conditions subside. Private property owners within the forest are exempt from this order, as are individuals or organizations holding special use permits within the forest.

While the closure is in effect, going into or being upon National Forest System lands, roads, or trails within the Los Padres National Forest will not be allowed. Violators will be subject to fines and/or possible arrest.

County roads and state highways which run through the forest will remain open to through traffic. Drivers are urged to use caution and to be aware of possible fire activity in the area.

For more information regarding the closure or current fire activity in the forest, contact the Los Padres National Forest Fire Information Center at 805-961-5770.

Rains are only going to make it worse. Mudslides and trail erosion. It will be a long time before some of those trails will open.

It appears that the Forests are now open except for all the Burn areas. You should check with the local Rangers office for the exact closures
