Starting today, all fires using any fuel, solid, liquid, or gas are banned on the trail and in any wilderness area of the SNP. Only liquid and gas fires are allowed in certain developed( read rv) campsites. It appears you can still hike and camp, but your camp must be cold. I just called to get a 4 day permit for two of us , so I will clarify the above when the ranger returns my call. Four days eating cold pop tarts----- I may need to find another area.
