    I do believe it's mid-May....like the 15th or so??? It's on the sign to the right near the start of Owl's Roost.

    What difference does it make? From what I have seen, everyone just parks on the road and goes around the gate anyway. Last night I saw a truck and large trailer with motorcycles on the trailer, parking on the road below the gate. It must of been fun backing down the road.
    You may pass me on the uphill, but on the downhill, my gravity kicks in!

    Its because people like to shuttle the trails above the gate. That way they don't get *****ed at for shuttling Hulls or Bob's.

    the gate

    I think they keep the gate closed to may 15th to ensure that the ridge road and 8th st are fully dried out before allowing a lot of full size vehical traffic on both roads while they are still muddy. 8th St. above the gate is a nightmare to maintain so I think keeping people off till then may helps to reduce some rutts. Of course some years leave the road wetter than other years, but I have seen them open the gate earlier if conditions are good enought to allow full size vehicals.
    Live to ride!
