Steep rugged terrain San Jacinto Wilderness
On November 16, 2020 San Bernardino National Forest officials announced that the Snow Fire, along with the El Dorado and Apple Fires have reached 100% containment. These fires were previously at 95% containment because uncontained perimeters were located in steep and inaccessible terrain. Containment has now been achieved as fire in uncontained areas has reached natural features void of vegetation.
Although full containment has been reached, the three fires remain in a status called uncontrolled. That means smoldering continues within the interior of the burn scar perimeters.
Fire restrictions on the forest will remain in effect until conditions improve, and are listed on the San Bernardino National Forest webpage.
Portions of the San Jacinto Wilderness, Santa Rosa and San Jacinto National Monument, Tahquitz National Game Preserve as well as portions of the Pacific Crest Trail are within the fire perimeter.
Please visit the forest's Alerts and Notices page for the fire closure area, which includes a portion of the PCT between Snow Creek Village and Black Mountain Road: https://origin-fs.fs.usda.gov/alerts/sbnf/alerts-notices.
