This Spring: Leave only Flowers and not Trash.

Visiting National Forests

Outdoor recreation can be beneficial for your health but must be practiced safely. Please avoid visiting national forests if you are sick and/or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Follow CDC guidance on personal hygiene and social distancing before and during your visit to the forest.

We recommend exercising close to your home and complying with local and state guidance for not traveling for your recreation needs. Stay safe. For more on avoiding COVID-19, visit www.coronavirus.gov.

We continue to recommend that you recreate locally--  here are current conditions for the Inyo.
