Great news for those of us that still have permits this season.
Release Date: Sep 14, 2021
Please see news release from the region below:
We are pleased to announce that the Inyo will re-open with no closures in place. This means the forest will be open on Thursday, September 16.
As a reminder, Stage II fire restrictions are still in place on the Inyo and many of our neighboring jurisdictions. That means no campfires, even in developed recreation sites. Visitors with a valid California Campfire permit may use a portable stove or lantern using gas, jellied petroleum, or pressurized liquid fuel.
It is only September and we still have a long way to go in this fire year. Do your part to prevent a wildland fire here. The availability of firefighters and equipment is seriously taxed and our firefighters, once again, have been on assignments for an extended period now away from their homes and loved ones. Letâ€™s do our best to help them come back home as early as possible and to protect the communities and the forests we dearly love in the Eastern Sierra.
As always, wilderness permits will not be issued for areas where closures are in effect. Visitors should know before they go and safely plan their trips around areas that closures, uncontained fires, active fire, and smoke in the area.https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/inyo/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD953063
