"What's this?" meant more like "are you kidding?". Sorry for the confusion. Is this what you are talking about?

My confusion too. I would think this has something to do with liability concerns, so someone can say "look they have this card".

Thanks for the reply.

A couple of weeks ago I called from another trailhead asking for comfirmation regarding a sign that was up. It looked like the one in the pic. I was told that, while they had taken their sign down, the county had put up their own signs as well, and hadn't come around to remove them, that the trail was in fact open. It probably IS really closed judging by how anal this district is, but it's always a good idea to call and confirm. Assuming you didn't.

Nope, no calls made. I cant call and take a pic at the same time! Damn, I thought a picture was enough.

throw me a number and Ill do better next time. (I know the number is in this thread, but I'm too depressed to look for it)

I bet the trail is open if the gate was open. I was told by the ranger it would open Wednesday.

Should have but believe it or not that was more for the guys here. I took the long way home and decided to take a peek and pic to see if the gate was open. Had to pick up a kid from school at 1130.

But now that it is, I was thinking of hitting it in the am. Is there a time that one is not allowed on that trail? Was thinking of hitting it at 0-dark-30. Need to be back by 9am.

Jon,
If the gate is open, the trail is open. That's the rule I live by, and that's what I'll tell the judge.

Rob, Marathon ride? Full moon ride and hit Saddleback on the way back. Should be home after daybreak with some GREAT views (and pics) of a sunrise.

First light

Clouds over Riverside?

Shadow at 730 time to head home.
