The pack station will be closed for heavy rain expected Friday, February 28th and Saturday, March 1st.
Sunday Mar 2nd is forecast to be sunny, so we may be open and will update you here.
NOTE: crossing streams in the rain or the following days can be very dangerous. The water may be deceptively swift. There are a few hikes from Chantry Flat that do not involve stream crossings, including the San Olene Fire Road to Lookout Point and Upper Winter Creek Trail to Mount Wilson. There may be some snow accumulation at Wilson, so be prepared with proper gear and footwear.
Remember if you come up and we are closed, you can park in our dirt lot for $5 and you do not need a pass. The gate to Chantry Flat may be closed by the City of Sierra Madre if there are rock slides on the road. You can check the status of the gate by calling Sierra Madre Police at 626-355-1414.
