Got a reply from Touratech today. They must have better contacts with the Forest Circus than I do. I'd heard rumours...
"I called the National Forest office today when I saw your post on ADVrider... They told me that the repairs at the bottom of Mission Creek are completed and that after the snows melt, cars and motorcycles will be able to ride through there again safely and legally. I'll go check it out in the spring but I'll have to take their word for it at this point."
Since I live a couple miles away, I'll be on the road come spring!
