The LA Times has an article on a controversial reforesting plan: http://www.latimes.co...­
Some trails may open May 30:

A lot of the trails are trashed. You can volunteer to do trail maintenance by calling the Los Angeles River Ranger District 818-899-1900.
The current plan is to reopen the Angeles Crest Highway June 1 http://www.angelesris...­ , if nothing goes wrong (but for the past few years, things have always gone wrong).

Most of the Station Fire closure area has apparently been opened up again: http://www.latimes.co...­ Strawberry Peak might make a good meetup for the near future.

If Angeles Crest Highway opens in June, it could also make it more practical do to car-shuttle hikes in the north-south direction, e.g., going over Baldy from south to north or north to south.
