San Gorgonio Wilderness reopened

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The Valley Fire Closure Area will be lifted on today, Thursday, August 30, 2018, San Bernardino National Forest officials have announced. The action, which is officially the termination of Forest Order 12-18-06, effectively reopens all portions of the San Gorgonio Wilderness previously closed due to the Valley Fire, which began on July 6 near the community of Forest Falls, Calif.

While the 1,350-acre fire with 82% containment remains in steep, inaccessible terrain, recent hot spells and dry weather have not produced any new smoke or flame activity. The fire remains in patrol status with full containment expected after the first significant precipitation event of fall or winter. The fire’s cause remains under investigation.

Trails to reopen include San Bernardino Peak, Momyer (pronounced Mo-Meyer) and Foresee Creek, and previously booked permits for overnight camping in the wilderness will remain valid.

Hikers with questions about the reopening can call the Mill Creek Visitor Center at 909-382-2882, Thursdays through Mondays or the forest headquarters at 909-382-2600 Mondays through Fridays. To keep updated on the Valley Fire, check InciWeb, the forest Twitter account and the Valley Fire Updates Facebook group.

Containment on Valley Fire reaches 100 percent

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The Valley Fire was declared 100 percent contained at 4 p.m. today October 22nd, San Bernardino National Forest officials announced. The decision was based on infrared flights, recent weather, especially significant rainfall on Oct. 13, and no recent reports of smoke and flame activity.

The Valley Fire, the cause which remains under investigation, began on July 6 at approximately 1:30 p.m. near the intersection of Highway 38 and Valley of the Falls Drive, outside the community of Forest Falls, Calif. It burned 1,350 acres in the forest and up steep cliffs into the San Gorgonio Wilderness of Sand to Snow National Monument. That steep terrain made the fire area inaccessible to personnel, prolonging full containment.

All trails into the wilderness were reopened on Aug. 30. Hikers with questions can call the Mill Creek Visitor Center at 909-382-2882, Thursday through Sunday, or the forest headquarters at 909-382-2600 Monday through Friday.

Unless it closed in the last 90 minutes - I just came down the 330 from Arrowbear. Wide open like a Tuesday night during the World Series. Nothin but crickets - and an occasional patch-o-ice.

Be advised, traffic going down on hwy 38 is backed up for many miles from jenks lake road west and at a stand still. Recommend using hwy 18 through lucerne valley as an alternative!
