Winter Storm Closure: Claremont Hills Wilderness Park

Now, there are some areas of our San Gabriel Mountains that can get some pretty severe weather conditions during the winter months, places and conditions that might prompt Del to remark "mother Gue never raised such a foolish child" to anyone thinking of being out and about in those worst of storms. While I am not necessarily sure the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park (CHWP) is one of those places, there have been large landslides and downed trees during severe weather events in the past.

If you want to challenge the elements this weekend, don't think you can do it at the CHWP, which will be closed beginning Friday, and remain so all the way through Tuesday. At this time the Park is scheduled to reopen on Wednesday, 25 January.
