Drought to Force Remote Parts of Forest to Close

October 10, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

Federal forest officials have announced that most of the Cleveland National Forest, including large portions in Orange County, will be closed Friday because of extremely dry conditions.

The forest will be open for recreational use in developed areas such as Blue Jay Campground, Falcon Campground, El Cariso Picnic Area, Upper San Juan Campground and Killen Truck Trail/South Main Divide.

State and county highways will remain open, but camping is prohibited in remote areas to help prevent wildfires.

The closure will remain in effect until substantial rainfall.
