    Good to know.
    I was thinking about doing an overnighter in the ONF.
    ...Or is that shut down/ off limits?

    A friend of mine on facebook sent me a link, and the hiking trails near 19 and 40 are still open, and "dispersed camping" aka stealth camping is still allowed.

    Yeah, backcountry is still open as far as I know. Probably quite buggy with the heat we've been getting.
