Los Padres National Forest officials have reopened the Romero Camuesa Road at Divide Peak as well as the stream crossing at Agua Caliente. The stream crossing was closed in April from the crossing west to where the road ends near Mono Campground to protect the red-legged frog tadpoles during breeding season. Santa Barbara District Ranger John Smith says, “We’ve reopened the crossing to motorized traffic, and will continue to monitor the stream and take action to protect the red-legged frogs as conditions warrant.”Visitors are strongly encouraged to plan ahead and contact the Los Prietos Ranger Station for the latest conditions by calling (805) 967-3481.
