San Gorgonio this summer

We are thinking about doing some multi-day hikes in the San Gorgonio Wilderness this summer, but are concerned about water.  Does anyone here have any information or ideas in that regard?  The SGWA Backcountry Board is almost useless.

The Limber Pine Bench spring seems to be pretty good no matter what, but what about Jackstraw Spring?  High Meadow Spring?

Gorgonio fire

you might want to wait and see what happens with the fire situation.

I guess I won't be hiking in the San Gorgonio Wilderness this summer . . . or any other time for the rest of my life:

The view yesterday from San Jacinto Peak:


Yup... Jody Noiron strikes again ....Im starting to think she is part arsonist.
But yeah, she will close that wilderness for a generation, or until she gets booted out.

Is that you Greg?  Wink

The forest service has shut the entire San Gorgonio Wilderness down until October 1 as of today. Hopefully unburned portions open sooner.

Indeed they have.  This past week, the USFS announced substantial modifications to their previous closure order.   Based on the US Forest Service's recent announcement modifying the Lake Fire closure area, I created a marked up topo map on my blog that shows more precisely which peaks and places are/are not now closed.
