The Indian Canyons, including Andreas and Murray canyons, remain closed until further notice due to extensive damage to the area, a tribal representative said in a statement.
"Agua Caliente rangers and emergency management workers continue to assess the damage caused by flash flooding in early September," the statement says. "Fast moving water from the heavy rains carried down trees, boulders, and mud damaging trails, roads and access to portions of the Indian Canyons."
The Canyons include about 56 square miles with more than 60 miles of trails, according to the tribe. They attract more than 125,000 visitors a year to enjoy the trails, plants, wildlife and cultural sites.
The Canyons were also closed temporarily earlier this year when more than 6,000 acres burned on the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians reservation during the Mountain Fire in July. They are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Mountain and Silver fire in July and August combined to destroy 71 structures including 33 homes, scorch more than 70 square miles, and cost firefighting and other agencies more than $35 million, according to Cal Fire and the Forest Service.
