Forest officials have extended the closure of Sequoia National Forest managed land near the Castle Fire through December 31, 2020. Despite cooler temperatures, hot spots continue to smolder and burn through dry vegetation. This creates hazardous conditions for anyone walking through the burned area such as smoldering stump holes and fire weakened trees. Highway 190, the Western Divide Highway and Mtn. road 50 over Parker Pass remain open to through travel. Trail of 100 Giants is open for day use until winter weather makes it necessary for Tulare County to close the Western Divide Highway and Mtn. Road 50 over Parker Pass.
