Full Closure Of Los Padres National Forest Now Indefinite


The U.S. Forest Service is now saying that the closure of the Los Padres National Forest, as well as eight others National Forests statewide is indefinite.

The forests were shut down in early September because of the string of wildfires hitting the state, and the ongoing high fire danger.  The closures mean that campgrounds and trails are completely closed to the public.

Forest Service officials say they will evaluate the closures on a daily basis, but at this point they aren’t even offering a suggested reopening date.
