Angeles National Forest To Open Some Areas Closed By The Station Fire
Good news for those who hunt or plan to hunt D11 or A31 this year. It's not much, but it's something. We all have to remember that they are trying to allow the forest to recover. It'll take quite a few years. We can volunteer to help out with the recovery efforts and can take care of the land we DO get to hunt on.

From the Angeles National Forest website...

Angeles National Forest will reopen about a dozen areas previously closed since the Station Fire last year. The reopenings set for May 26 will offer the public recreation including hiking, picnicking and camping.

Locations accessible include the Magic Mountain Wilderness, and vast majorities of Pleasant View Wilderness, West Fork of the San Gabriel River, Rincon Shortcut Road, Millard Campground, Chilao, Bandito, Horse Flats, Meadow Loop, Manzanita Loop and Coulter recreation areas. Additional areas are reflected on the attached map.

The bulk of the burned areas remain closed for rehabilitation and public safety, until further notice. The Forest Service intent is to reopen areas severely damaged in the fire over the next few years as conditions allow.   news release     forest order
