    Hold everything on the Kokopelli thing. The Kokopelli end of the Loop Road is closed until May 1, and is only open on weekends after that:

    Loop Road Closure Update

    The La Sal Loop Road will be closed to all vehicles and bikes between Miners Basin and the Castle Valley Overlook, until May 1st.

    Starting May 1st the La Sal Loop Road north of the Sand Flats Road will be closed during the week to all vehicles and bikes and open on the weekends. Expect delays on other portions of the road between the Mill Creek Bridge and Sand Flats Road.

    Access to Warner Lake and Oowah Lake will remain open but visitors will need to use the southern end of the Loop Road for access.

    The Loop Road portion of the Kokopelli Trail will be impacted.

    Call the US Forest Service at 435-259-7155, or the Grand County Road Department at 435-259-5308 for more info.

    From what I can tell, it looks like if we end the ride at Rock Castle Campground we would avoid any closures. Anyone see any problem with that or have a better suggestion for getting around the construction?
    Also open to other bikepacking routes. This one seemed good because my buddy and I will be in Fruita hanging out while my wife is at a women's mtb event, then we're heading to Moab, but we could probably have my wife drop us off/pick us up anywhere in the area.

    Posted this in the trip planner thread but this seemed more appropriate.

    Any updates and/or predictions for the mid-March time frame?

    How far up is Porcupine currently open?

    Thanks!

    According to their Facebook page and posts, Porcupine Shuttle just opened for business. A pic they posted a day or two ago showed more than a handful of inches at LPS entrance. However, things can change rapidly this time of year. Give them a call when it gets a bit closer.

    Last Tuesday lower Porcupine was open, but they probably got some snow with the last storm. Your best bet is to give one of the bike shops closer to when you plan on riding.

    Slickrock last Tuesday.
