Yes, I called the national forest office in Leavenworth on 11/3 who said they have jurisdiction over the Mission Creek area. They told me the proposed road repairs at Mission Creek are now completed. This is important because as 1911 points out it was closed, barricaded, and signed not to ride through. That said, it wasn't difficult even on a 1000cc or 1200cc motorcycle to get over the barricade using the side hill and ride the trail along side the road. BUT it wasn't legal and we couldn't put that section into the WABDR route, GPS tracks, the Butler Map, and the DVD film until repaired so we are glad the NF got the work done!!
