The Inyo National Forest and Devils Postpile National Monument announce that the Reds Meadow Valley Road will open on Friday, June 15 at 5:00 pm. The road received damage in two sections of the road, where the sub-grade material under the road washed away and the road buckled. The forest’s Engineering Crew, with the assistance of an additional crew brought in under an emergency contract, rebuilt and repaved these segments of the road.

The mandatory Reds Meadow Shuttle Bus will run starting Saturday, June 16. Only exception vehicles will be allowed to drive into the Reds Meadow Valley. Please visit https://www.estransit.com/routes-schedule/seasonal/reds-meadow-shuttle/ for details.

The Agnew Meadows,Minaret Falls, Reds Meadow, Upper Soda Springs, and the Pumice Flat Campgrounds will open by Friday, June 22 and earlier if feasible by the concessioner, California Land Management (http://www.clm-services.com). Inyo National Forest and Devils Postpile National Monument water systems are being tested for potability, so hikers and campers should bring their own water. The Reds Meadow Resort and Pack Station is open with camping supplies.

The Devils Postpile Ranger Station will be open daily, 9:00 am -5:00 pm starting June 16. As a reminder, wilderness permits are issued at the Welcome Center in Mammoth Lakes—not at the Ranger Station. Flush toilets are available at the Ranger Station. Devils Postpile National Monument campground is closed this year to increase day use access for picnicking, improved river access for fishing, and to provide overflow parking in the fall. Please call the Ranger Station/Visitor Center at 760-934-2289 for more information. The trail to viewpoints above Rainbow Falls are open. Trail crews are repairing the damages on the trail to the base of Rainbow Falls, which will remain closed until work is completed.

The roads in the Reds Meadow Valley are narrow and visibility is limited. All vehicles should use caution on both the Reds Meadow and Devils Postpile roads.
