Postby VWA Admin on Sat Oct 10, 2020 5:07 pm

All of us are weary of US Forest Service Closure Orders. Here's the latest order for the Dolan Fire (dated 10/09/2020) which effectively keeps the entire Monterey Ranger District of Los Padres National Forest (which includes the Ventana and Silver Peak Wilderness areas) closed to visitors. Information at this link includes the Closure Map.
