Effective today, the National Park Service is re-opening some trails in the Springs Fire Burn Area.
Most trails in the small Rancho Sierra Vista / Satwiwa unit just north of Point Mugu State Park have re-opened, although they are currently only open from sunrise to sunset. Portions of the Satwiwa Loop Trail are closed, although hikers can reach the Hidden Valley Overlook. (PDF).
The Mishe Mokwa Trail to Sandstone Peak is now re-opened to hikers, although the Backbone Trail west of the Point Mugu State Park boundary is closed.
All trails inside Point Mugu State Park, including Sycamore Canyon, remain closed and off-limits to hikers, although Thornhill Broome, Sycamore Cove, and Mugu Beaches are open and accessible.
I’ve updated the Fire Closure page and the Trail Maps.
