    What time does South Mountain really close???

    (48th and Guadalupe) I realize that the sign says gates close at 7pm but I've been there past 730 and they are both still wide open.. I want to go for a night ride but I'm not sure if it's a good idea... any thoughts/ comments/ concerns?

    Hhmm.. There is a couple of gates and a guard shack there. Are they just always left open?

    They do patrol and close that gate

    But sometimes not until around 8:00 or 9:00 pm. You can park just outside the gate if need be...

    The only thing that closes @ SoMo is the gate, and that's whenever they feel like doing it. The trails are open 24/7. If you want to ride there after hours, park at the school off Warner and ride in from that lot.

    Gates

    You can always get out of the gate on the right if your leaving just don't back up over the tire teeth or what ever their called . I don't believe their is a gate on that side. Don't drive in on that side if you get their later and if the entrance side is closed just park where Paul suggested.

    Right on.. I was strarting to think that day after day of having to wait on lollygagers, someone would figure just leave that exit gate open. Expecting of course that nobody would sacrifice their tires just to park there, instead of the neigborhood that's close by.

    Wink Used to keep a board in the back of my truck...

    used to keep a wide board in the back of my truck to lay on the tire spikes and drive in after hours. Just have a friend stand on one end to keep 'em in place!

    Hmmm, where's this at? The only other spot I'm used to for DC's past Corpus Christi Church and then up the hill with the small pillars. Maybe that's where this is at, hehe.

    That's awesome. What's the point in closing the gate anyway? It just seems inconvenient as it doesn't prevent folks from coming in...and it's open 24/7.
