On February 16, 2021, a Forest Order went into effect closing many of the roads and trails within the Castle Fire (part of the SQF Complex). This order carries out through the end of December, 2021. As seen in the photo above, this impacts many popular entry points into the Golden Trout Wilderness on the Sequoia National Forest such as the Summit Trail from the North Road, Jacobsen Meadow Trail, Long Meadow Trailhead, Lewis Camp Trailhead, Clicks Creek Trailhead, Jerkey Meadows Trailhead, and the Forks of the Kern. Roads leading to many of these trailheads are closed as well. Users wanting to go into the western portion of the GTW will need to find other means of doing so.
