I just have a dumb flip phone without a texting plan, so I don't text. I did get your text on it. I sent you an email since I get charged for texts... Email is generally best for me. Yeah, we ended up slumming with the local wildlife on segelsen :redneck:

Was it gated at milepost 21 as the NPS website suggests? Or did it get closed further back now? Was hoping to go climbing up there one of these weeks.

I sent via the forum, probably went to your spam folder.

Does it typically get gated in winter?

It closes at mile 21 every winter, not sure before that which is why I'm wondering where it was closed. There's not much documentation on later in the winter since the number of people in the mountaineering and snow wheeling community is very close to zero. Some of the most beautiful climbing in the state up there.

gated at the eldorado trailhead with 6" of snow.. pathetic. We were hoping it was gated at the last gate 1.5mi from the end so we could go up to the end, but 3mi with a newborn in the snow is not going to happen. if we ever get any more snow I'll be sled skiing up there though.. gates are no issue for snowbike :)
