    Well, clearly we should stand right at the edge and gawk. Surely the remaining soil is perfectly stable.

    I just hope no one was hurt on that slide, or, they find a car down there. That would be worst case

    Anyone know if it's north or south of the trailhead for JNT, Sunnyvale Mtn I think? Would be nice if it can be bypassed on the Skyline trail.

    Regardless of which way it slid this could have serious ramifications for the proposed bike at Sanborn. Not like it isn't dead already.

    Why do you say dead already?

    I think this will delete traffic up there so riding up there will likely be more attainable is my thought.

    By the way, I rode there today...ride report coming soon on ride report thread.
    I'm not sure how this works.

    My sources.

    If Black Road is the only access they'll never get approval; increased traffic will be the reason. Again; my sources.

    By the way, I rode there today...ride report coming soon on ride report thread.
    Looking forward to your full report

    The folks that live up there are sort of used to it. I remember getting cut off up there for ten days. Just us Firefighters and 400 residents. Only way to get anyone sick or injured out was cross country on a wheeled stokes litter if the clouds were to low to let a helo land at the soccer field. There is a graveled fire road or two that leads into Boulder Creek that might still be passable (or not) with a 4x4.

    It looks like it got bigger. I am seeing reports of 200 feet of highway sliding. It looks even treacherous to ride on the road as well.


    This is a good article on it with video and pictures.

    Did they say how they were getting off the mountain? With hwy 9 closed on the Santa Clara side, and now this it seems a bunch of people are stuck. Next closest way down to on this side would seem to be...Page Mill?

    Yeah, PageMill. It's not a horrible drive, but it's really far out of your way.

    It's north of Sunnyvale mtn trailhead. However the road is blocked off at the entrance to Las Cumbres. I'm told by other locals that cars parked on Skyline will be ticketed. There's no safe place to park on Skyline anyhow.

    Now that 9 is open it'd be better to park there and ride the Skyline trail south. It's open past the slide. John Nicolas trail is closed where it meets Skyline trail. Unfortunately that's the best part.

    Maybe because other roads are closed they needed to.
