Or 224 & 46?

Does anyone know the current conditions of OR 224/46 between Estacada and Detroit? We're heading that way (well... sort of) during spring break and I'm considering riding to meet the family down there... but the Forest Service's online road conditions state it's closed, although the update was from the middle of December... I'm guessing it's still too early to take that route but figured I'd check to see if anyone knew otherwise (meaning I'm hoping it's open cause I've been itching to ride that for months)

Thanks

Dave

Unless you need the info today, try calling the FS office in Estacada. I have found them helpful in finding out current conditions.

Call ahead of time? Doesn't sound very adventurous.

Yeah, and if you wait until after to call, you can seven keystrokes.

Good idea, then you won't have to worry about shoveling snow, just old ladies swinging shovels.

Snow

Rode it last Sunday for a stretch. Made it to just north of Breitenbush before the snow/slush/ice made my bike tired and nap.

The snow was super wet and slushy. I was riding in some trucks tire tracks. Patches of asphalt were visible. Maybe a smaller bike or more aggressive tyres would have been easier. I was with a friend on a v-strom and he decided he was done, so we turned tail and rode back to Estacada for beer.

On a side note, there are some small rockfalls and at least one large boulder that is partially blocking the northbound lane after the turnoff for Bagby.

Yeah, I was almost surprised there was any snow at all. The road was clear and dry up to the last 1/4 mile.
