El Dorado Fire Burn Scar Reopens After 18-Month Closure

The reopening includes the Thurman Flats Picnic Area and popular trails, such as the San Bernardino Peak and Foresee Creek. Areas outside the burn scar closed due to debris flow concerns, such as trails and recreation cabin areas, are also now open, the U.S. Forest Service announced.

“Visitors are forewarned that they will be entering a burn scar where hazards may persist. Those include falling trees and limbs, loose rocks and ash pits, and trails blocked by debris or with washouts,” according to the federal agency.
