As of today:
Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) Garner Valley to I-10 Closed to Visitor
The Pacific Crest Trail is closed from Highway 74 (mile 152) to Strawberry Junction (mile 183) near the San Jacinto State Park boundary due to the Mountain Fire Closure Area. PCT is closed from the State Park to I-10 due to the Silver Fire Closure Order 13-12. The PCT is open between Saddle Junction to South Ridge Trail only (access to Tahquitz Peak Fire Lookout).
Access to *Red Tahquitz is closed because its shared with PCT trail. Same with Black Mountain lookout. Laws Camp, Caramba overlook, and I don't think the Palm Springs tram is running yet.

Also Hwy 243 is partially open this weekend for the Jazz festival, but starting Monday it will be closed so CalTrans and clean up. They did say that they will open to traffic every 15 minutes with a Pilot car for a 1-way single lane. So expect serious traffic delays.
I'm also told that the shrubs and bushes on the side of the road are now burned, many locals used them as visual markers when driving, to mentally center the car on the lane. Now without the bushes, locals who are "experts" on this mountain road are finding it scary and dangerous to navigate without the shrub markers.
