Road Condition Mission. Gate is still closed.
I went in through Blue Jay (ortega side), gate was open. At the next gates Indian TT was locked but gates to top were also open. Looked like the upper gates to Maple Springs were also open. I went down Bedford, those gates open as well.
So I was thinking as I was going in that if the gates were open then the place must be devoid of anything interesting, as the rangers would only open the gates if the lowest common denominator can pass through without trouble. Amazingly there was still some ice on the road in the shady side. Of course just after I took this pic a VW squareback comes sliding down the ice and almost biffs it:eek1
As of Sunday 7pm the maple gate was open.
On Clevland Nation Forest website, it says it is still closed..
Website is rarely correct
I met a couple of riders on Santiago Peak today. Said they came up through Maple Springs and that the gate was open.
I am going to the peak, probably around 7ish. Ill be eating tacos at cooks corner at 6 with some friends. Can't miss us. 3 KLRS. One red, one green, one pink.
If I wasnt having pink taco, Id join in the fun!
LOL! Hey guys, Just got off the phone with the ranger. ALL gates are open (except Indian Truck). Anyone up for a Wednesday night ride? I'm itching to test out my Squadron headlamp.
Bummer, I'm working tonight. Hopefully some of you sorry asses will want to join me tomorrow night!
If I get off work early I'll join you. Where and when?
The road to get to santiago peak was blocked. Got all the way up to the top of maple springs and when we turned right the gate was closed.
Edit: Nevermind after looking, we went down the entrance to harding instead.
I'm thinking around 6 or so at the restaurant . Even later is ok
this message self-destroyed...
Might be up for tonight and tomorrow night. The rain is on its way Thursday so dickwad will probably close those recently opened gates. Been a while since we actually got to ride to the top.
I have been up there a couple times, but always from the corona side. This was my first time going up (not down) maple spring. I didn't even know the harding trail was there because you have to zoom in really close on google maps. So when I hit it I was a bit confused. I would have been fine in the light.
Any updates on the Corona entrance?
Well I'm rolling up through Maple Springs in a few hours. I'm not chancing waiting till tomorrow. Ranger told me the other day, first sign of rain and the gates will be closed!
I will be at the gate around 6 or 7.
Open as of yesterday.
