Good news, the Forest Service has lifted the restrictions in the Los Padres National Forest. This means I can resume my original hiking plan. Instead of Sulphur Mountain Road I will be doing Montecito Peak. This is looking to be a challenging hike as I am thinking about doing two branches of the Cold Spring Trail, each climbing over 2,000 feet. I will let you know if I actually do both branches. Kind of depends on if I survive tonight's party.
