Total Closure Of Los Padres National Forest Extended


The U.S. Forest Service has extended its closures of nine national forests in California because of ongoing fire and weather concerns, a shutdown which includes the Los Padres National Forest.

The closure went into effect two weeks ago.  It means that campgrounds, trails, and all other facilities are temporarily closed. 

The shutdown was originally supposed to end last weekend, but it has been extended until this coming Thursday.
