    Soquel Demonstration Forest updates?

    Does anyone know anything? Post up please.
    I'm not sure how this works.

    I read somewhere on Facebook that work is set to start in April and they are hoping to open by May.
    I'm the problem....

    Demo Forest is STILL closed until CALFIRE says its open. Check their website and facebook for updates. At a minimum they won't open it until they have access for emergencies and roads in the forest are repaired.

    Please keep CALFIRE happy and don't visit the forest until it is opened. Thanks.

    I heard Hihn's Road is trashed, which is not hard to imagine based on the Nisene fireroad.
    Friends don't let friends ride e-"bikes" on dirt.

    Nature is not a sidewalk (I'm looking at you, MidPen).

    ...and I see by virtue of a Strava report today from someone I know that it's being ridden with the complaint of "muck" and "downed trees". WTF?
    Always ride with a purpose.

    ^^ Yeah, Strava shows 109 people have ridden the Flow Trail this year, with a bunch of really slow times after the Jan. 11 closure (including my friend's idiot b/f, Jim). Luckily, the folks at Calfire don't look at Strava. Except when they do.

    I think guys are riding Demo by riding up through Nisense Marks park. If you live on the SC/Aptos area it would be a pretty healthy ride.
