Current Conditions: In anticipation of snow forecast to reach elevations of 6,000 feet, the Angeles National Forest (ANF) is closing the gate on road 3N17 above Mill Creek fire station. This will effectively close Pacifico Campground to vehicle access. We will reassess conditions after the storms pass and reopen the gate if road and weather conditions are conducive.
