    Wonder what they are doing up there at night?
    USMC playing with their Ospreys?

    Prescribed burn South of Ortega Hwy.

    Good morning, the forest will have prescribed burns on the Trabuco District and the Descanso District today.

    The prescribed burn on the Trabuco will be off South Main Divide south of the Lakeland Village community. Smoke will be visible from Lake Elsinore and other surrounding communities. https://t.co/HHOuhBTG6d

    They've apparently been doing those for a while. I saw signs and evidence of controlled burns when I was riding SMD a couple weeks ago.

    Classic USFS screwup.

    The burn on South Main Divide has escaped containment lines and has been declared a wildfire. The fire is currently 5 acres with a moderate rate of spread. No structures threatened at this time. Additional air and ground resources have been ordered.

    I thought North Main Divide was closed. Looks like someone was tinkering around up there on Strava.

    Pretty sure J meant to say can't park.

    I'm not saying it makes sense. Just passing it along.

    Looking at the Angeles National forest pages, and I don't see a similar order... Are they afraid the rioters will end up burning down the forest?

    I'd say it's too much work to get to and there's nothing to steal.

    No, it’s the Silverado Canyon folks who don’t want us in their canyon because us outsiders are sick and will bring CV through. :rolleyes:

    As of right now, CNF website has no order listed. Yesterday I saw one ending 6/15.
    Some CG's are closed until 7/1.

    I'm planning on trying San Juan for the first time next Friday.

    According to the Adventure Pass settlement there has to be free parking 1/2 mile from the fee area. Anyone know if this exists for the Hot Springs TH (lower San Juan)?

    How are people's Adventure Passes marked?
    Got an annual pass and 2nd at REI today and they didn't mark them.
    Do they hole punch? Sharpe circle?

    I might be able to use these until Dec 2023.

    The clerk was supposed to punch it. Eventually, a ranger or other attendant who asks to see it will punch it, or not.

    How much do those go for? An annual "America the Beautiful" pass or whatever they call the National Park pass these days will take its place. $80, and it gets you into any National Park to boot. And any other federal lands with an entrance fee.

    I believe tickets may now carry more weight since the settlement.
    2 passes cost $35 for the year. $30 for the first and $5 for a second vehicle. Me and my bud split it. Haven't looked much at the other passes, no National Parks planned for me this year.
    Just placed our passes on the dash unpunched. Saw another vehicle there before us with no pass at all. Car was there when we got back, no ticket or anything. Assume no USFS staff visit.
    Didn't even make it 3 miles up SJT in a bit over two hours. Very hot with technical ST climbing for me. A fall over a near cliff didn't help.
    Might get to a RR.

    Got it. It helps if one reads the entire thread instead of skimming. I was just wondering as now they say the trailhead is closed yet the trail is open. Would hate to make that long of a drive there if I couldn’t actually ride. I was wondering how much free parking there is before the pay lot area. I don’t think you can park on Ortega. Can you park on the side of the road past the ranger station and on the way to the lot ?

    there have been 9 rides posted to Strava since 7-1. Go ride and don't worry about it.
