Corona, CA. (December 21, 2016) - The Trabuco Ranger District in Corona will be intermittently closing Trabuco Canyon Road for the next year or more, prior to wet weather predictions. Closures are expected to last several days following rain events to allow the area to dry.

The most recent mudslide in Trabuco Canyon demonstrates how vulnerable the land can be following a fire. After receiving only an inch and a half of rain in an area damaged by the 2015 Holy Fire, the weakened soil and slopes gave way to large mudslides, trapping four vehicles, washing away roads and blocking off access to cabins. Debris flows and mudslides remain a concern until the area recovers from fire damage, which can take several years or more.

Access to the area is limited to cabin owners only. Recreational users looking to access Holy Jim or Horsethief trails must do so by way of North Main Divide Road. Residents in the area may call the Trabuco Ranger District at 951-736-1811 for up to date information on closures. Any changes to road conditions will also be posted on the Alerts and Notices page.
