    New question here. Parking at Emery Henderson TH

    I am planning on heading up to EH on Friday morning, what time does the gate open? Or is it always open? What about closure, does it shut at sunset? Is there still a camp host there who could potentially let me out if I happen to return after sunset. (Like that ever happens) Anyway, just looking for the entry/exit beta on this trailhead.

    It's been open 24/7 the last couple of months or so since their hasn't been a caretaker there.

    Perfect. Thanks. Maybe I'll shoot for a 7a arrival then, beat most of the traffic through town & hopefully finish up at a semi-reasonable time.

    Even with a caretaker I have never seen the gate closed ever. However I have heard of nasty notes put on cars left overnight. But if there is no caretaker I doubt that will happen. 7am should be fine.

    John,
    When I've started BP trips from there, the caretaker told me that I could not park in the paved lot overnight or my car would be ticketed. I know there wasn't a caretaker there about a month ago so not sure if the gates actually even get closed now or not. I think from sunrise to sunset you should be fine.
    Take trail tools with you...some sections south of TM rd need a good baby head raking.

    I did EH to TM ONB last weekend and the trail was the normal chunk. No caretaker.

    a buddy and I will be bikepacking BCT this monday and tuesday starting at EH. Wednesday we meet another buddy at Hwy 69 in Mayer and we'll ride BCT back to EH. So I contacted BLM and they confirmed no caretaker, gate is always open, and I got a permit for parking overnight at EH good for 7 days. BLM was very helpful. They also confirmed that BLM is the EH operator since they did not renew the contract with the County.

    Great info PL, thanks.

    I started much later than I originally planned for my ride today, but I rolled back to EH just before 6p without the need for lights so I was happy about that. Obviously, no issues leaving after dark. What a great day to be out for a ride!
