    One of my 600's. I am looking to do a plated ride. Wasn't gonna go up too high. Probably mess around on deadwood ridge and the eldorado creek trail. Just wanted to get out before they close things. I guess it might stay open until there is snow at lower elevations? I have seen it before where it was posted that all rosds and trails are closed.

    This is shaping up for friday or saturday november 24th or 25th.

    Ok see? That is why I was asking!
    Went east of here yesterday. Mammoth bar closed, sugar pine closed.

    At 10 am... can't tell you how many disappointed riders I saw heading back out, trucks loaded up with dirt bikes, the end of what could'a been a great day of traction without dust.

    If you ask me conditions were perfect.
    I went on a dualsport ride on roads.

    So yes....
    CLOSED

    Weather is perfect again so we've got a ride going from Auburn area on Saturday morning, 9:30 am at the Flour Garden Coffee shop. Looks like a full day through Foresthill to Duncan's and extra stuffs with post ride debriefing at Crooked Lane Brewery after. Open invite, ride will be 50 % dirt/mud , 50% street.

    Thinking about a trip over the Sierras next weekend to get a little warmer riding weather. I have driven 88 past Pipi turnoff many times over the years. But I have never been over that way. Wondering about camping and riding conditions this time of year. Elkins Flat, ?? Thanks for any info you can give me!

    Anyone know if foresthill (OHV, not the town) is still dry?
    I was up there about a month ago and it had been raining and such... but it looks like the snow never came.
    Sorry, I have no real perception of the conditions right now as I'm just finishing up my shift in west Texas. Where, oddly, it snowed like a crazy last week.

    Not sure about Foresthill, but I was up at Georgetown OHV last week (mace mills I think it’s called) and it was open and in great condition

    We rode there on Saturday on big bikes and some spots were dry, others were gnarly wet and some were icy. There were crashes.
