    It means just what it says... the stretch in between Ortega and Elsinore Peak is open, and the stretch from Elsinore Peak to the Tenaja Falls trailhead is closed.

    I read this as South Main Divide was open and rode up there to go to do the short Tenaja Falls hike today... it isn't open any more than it has been since December. Clearly some other riders have made their way around the gate and it really doesn't look bad, however I wasn't too keen on doing it on my 1090 while alone and with a bald tkc80 on the rear. I hadn't realized that the Tenaja Falls trailhead was accessible from the Murietta side this whole time until recently, so after the fail from the Ortega side I rode around to the Murietta side and got lost so I didn't have to to do the hike. Still was a good way to kill some time though.

    SmittyRunner and I went up on a 1190 and Africa twin. Had a run in with a very large mud pit that wasnt very fun, but overall a good time.

    That mud was fun to clean off my bike. I took a shower with the garden hose when I got home.

    Is skyline open?

    Someone told me the gate was shut and they were giving federal tickets for being on the road . But the gate at the top was open coming down.

    Surf was awful this morning so took pops up to CNF. Surprisingly cool on the hill and lots of traffic of every sort.

    On the way back pulled over to wait for Pops to catch up ... waited and waited ... start backtracking and

    RUHROH!

    Good thing the big bush kept the bike from going to far over the side
