FS 6700 open? US2 to Lake Wenatchee

Does anyone know if FS 6700 is open yet? I was hoping to take that option into the Touratech Rally, but I know it's often blocked throughout June.

Was closed to motorized last year, IIRC, due to downed trees. but open to bicycles. I'd call the Forest Circus and ask, but I don't think it's open.

It is open this year, but I don't know if it goes all the way through yet. I was up there Father's Day weekend riding with my daughter and wife, but we turned around maybe 3 miles from the top (coming from Lake Wenatchee). It was raining. Why not just try and let us know? It's only 12 miles or so, and you'll find out in the first 3 miles if it's open or not.

I tried to ride through there on Sunday, was turned back by snow a few miles in. Looks like it might be a little while yet.

Thanks for the feedback. I'd also called the ranger station who reported it's still closed.

Where you going east bound or west bound? How much snow was there?
Was hoping to ride it Friday.

Thanks,
Bob

I was heading east, and it was only a couple of miles from hwy 2, at the top of the first hill. There was about this much snow:

I walked a ways and didn't come to the end of it. Too much for me to ride.....Name:  photo.jpg
