The Inyo National Forest has rescinded Forest Closure 05-04-51-20-17, effective immediately due to diminished fire risk from the SQF Complex (Castle Fire). This opens the Monache Meadows area.
As a reminder, the following closures are still in effect:
• Inyo National Forest within Madera County remains closed. The most common destinations
are Reds Meadow Valley and the Devils Postpile National Monument. This area remains
closed due to the Creek Fire to the west.
• Forest order 05-04-54-20-15 remains in effect and includes Navy Beach and the South Tufa
• The Inyo portions of the South Sierra, Golden Trout, John Muir, Ansel Adams, Owens River
Headwaters, and Hoover Wilderness Areas remain closed. This closure may be rescinded
or extended as needed.
Wildernesses in the Inyo Mountains and the White Mountains, front country dispersed areas
throughout the forest, developed sites, resorts, and recreation resident cabins are open.
Visitors to the Eastern Sierra should expect smoky conditions.
