More Station Fire area to be re-opened on May 24th

ALTADENA (CBSLA.com) About 46,000 acres of the Angeles National Forest will reopen Saturday after the land was charred during the 2009 Station Fire.

Some areas remain closed out of concern for public safety or because more work is needed on trails, according to the Forest Service.

The closed areas include Lower Gabrielino Trail, Barley Flats Trail, Colby Trail, Ken Burton Trail, Millard Water Fall User Trail, Santa Clara Divide Road, Messenger Flats Campground, Lighting Point Campground and Big Buck Campground.

Nice.  Glad to see they're opening up a bit more.

If I'm reading this right, that means the east ridge of Strawberry from Red Box is open, right?  Very Happy

That's the deal.

Hmmm...wonder what the statute of limitations is?

Is there a closed area at this point?  The document linked above only shows closed roads.  Is everything except these roads open?  I checked the ANF website and only found the same document, no maps or descriptions of a closed area or areas.

Strawberry Peak status unknown...

Probably best to call the appropriate ranger station (not sure which that would be) and ask...when I went out there to do Josephine Peak via the fire road at ACH and AFH on May 25, there was a huge almost billboard-size sign saying area closed, no parking, stay out, etc. And the Colby Canyon trailhead still said No Parking Any Time last Friday (June 6)...I think that area is still closed, but call and see if someone official knows...

I meant to stop by the fire station across Angeles Forest Highway from the Josephine Fire Road trailhead to ask about the area's status on the way back from Baden-Powell Friday, but forgot...

Stopped by the Colby Canyon trailhead yesterday and the trail is still posted "closed."
