Fire, Weather and Road Conditions

Mount Laguna primary roads are maintained by the San Diego County road department. In the winter, Sunrise Highway is regularly plowed as are major access roads such as Los Huecos Rd. During heavy or prolonged snow, chains may be required to come up Sunrise Highway from Highway 8. This is determined by the Highway Patrol. Four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles are recommended when snow conditions are present.

Winter RoadCabin driveways are maintained by the cabin owners located on those driveways. During winter, snow may block vehicle access along some cabin driveways and alternate access may be necessary. For some cabins, no cabin access is available during recent and heavy snows.
