“Even though Forest Road 92 is closed, there are other areas of the forest that can be accessed due to seasonal road openings that took place over the past couple of weeks,” said Steve Romero, district ranger. “However, beware of Stage 2 fire restrictions already in effect as of today. If you plan to be in the forest, practice good fire prevention throughout the forest.”
