    Western States Trail (16E10.1) Status?

    Has anyone been on this trail in the past month? https://www.trailforks.com/trails/we...dorado-canyon/ Thanks!

    There's a report from May 3 on Trailforks "Consider closed for now. Hundreds of trees down across the trail." Not sure if you've seen that and that's the reason for your post in the first place. Very unlikely that has been cleared in the meantime, that is not a single day's work even for a crew. I'd call the appropriate USFS Ranger District and ask about it, almost certain if anyone has cleared it'd be them.

    You can call the Foresthill Ranger Station but I'm guessing its pretty horrific. The Western States Trail foundation does most of the work on that trail and since neither Tevis or WS 100 will happen this year there hasn't been a lot of need to clear the trail off. Sugar Pine OHV trails proper are good to go. Trails 5 and 6 are not as of the last time I ventured out that way.

    Thanks Sean. To clarify, I've sought information via the USFS and elsewhere and have not as of yet received any first-hand accounts from the past month. At this point I'm assuming nothing has changed.
