IMessage 1 of 32 , Jun 29, 2013View SourceNot relevant to the JMT trail,but I was required (and given) a separate "stove" permit this Memorial Day for a part of the PCT in the San Bernadino range.I already had my entry permit, but the ranger issued me additional one as a requirement for my backpack. I've been backpacking for 25 years and had never been issued a stove permit.( Sorry, I guess i should have sent this to our sidebar).Viraj Ward

Your wilderness permit doubles as a California campfire permit.The new restrictions are occasioned by the unusually high fire danger in this dry year. They don't requite new permits, just limit what you can do with a permit. Roleigh is working on clarifying the new requirements. If you are using an alcohol stove, you might want to show that you can "control" it in the sense of extinguishing it quickly even if there is remaining fuel in it. Some alcohol stoves have this; others don't.If you really wanted a California Campfire Permit, you can get a print-at-home one here:And I assume most National Park entry stations and wilderness offices will issue them on request.John Curran Ladd

Information about the campfire ban on the PCT south of Yosemite is posted on the PCT Association's website: http://www.pcta.org/2013/campfires-banned-on-southern-pct-12941/ .They state that, "Controlled flame devices such as portable stoves fueled by petroleum or LPG products are allowed by permit." Does anyone know what type of permit is required and where to obtain it? Does each member of a hiking group using a stove need to have a separate permit?

I know many frown on campfires, even in appropriate areas, but I love sitting around the fire at night and was hoping for this a few nights. Guess not! Oh well!
