Ascent Trip Report

Went up the Forsee Trail during the Forest Fire Closure area, when we were stopped by volunteer rangers, who took our permit and threatened to turn us into Law Enforcement if we continued with a $5000 fine and/or 6 months in jail. For hiking four miles from the "burned area"? Seriously? Leave it to the Feds. Trail has in excellent condition, sky was clear, and a pathetically small part of the trail was burned. Thanks USFS volunteers for ruining our day 0.5 miles from the summit, after 6 hours of hiking. We will be back.
