    This is in the Mendocino National Forest, north of Clear Lake, CA.

    I am surprised the gate was open just before you get to the Fouts Springs staging area and not far past where you crossed the Middle fork of Stony Creek. I live up there (just outside of Stonyford), and it has been closed the last few times I have checked (December - January). Maybe it is closed but not locked?

    GF and I have done that ride many times. It is one of our favorites.

    Thanks for this posting. I have been interested in spending more time exploring that region. I am interested in travelling that route too. According to your post, it may be best in late spring after the creeks settle.

    Any other takers?
    PM me.
