National Forest closure order

All California National Forest lands are to be closed to access Wednesday 9/1 through 9/17. All trailheads, trails, camping, picnicking, etc. As far as i can tell the State Park adjacent to upper Palm Springs tramway station remains open.

Just read this on the Mt. San Jacinto State Park webpage:

Mt. San Jacinto State Park Wilderness backcountry and trail system will be closed from August 31, 2021, at 11:59 pm, through September 17, 2021, at 11:59 pm. This closure is to better provide public safety and firefighter safety due to the ongoing California Wildfire Crisis. The following areas within Mt. San Jacinto State Park will remain open during this closure:

Stone Creek Campground
Idyllwild Campground
Desert Loop Trail and Nature Trail (Palm Springs Tramway Side of Park)

:( :( :(

Spent the last couple days in Lone Pine with a day permit for Whitney yesterday. This short cited nonsense was causing all kinds of confusion and worry in the Backcountry. Also the small hiking shops along the 395 that were finally moving on from covid just took another hit. Really sad.

My opinion is formed after 20 years of wildland fire experience in California.
