    FS476/South Mills River Rd

    Is the 476 road down to the Gauging Station open at the moment? Was hoping to do some camping down there.

    Thanks.

    On Saturday 8/25, the gate was closed just past the horse camp.

    I would go with that. I was out there a couple of weeks ago and it was open so I assumed it wouldn't be closed again until winter. The road was getting rough although a Honda Fit got down it just fine but maybe with the rains it's gotten worse.

    On the plus side, it opens up some great bikepacking sites. A 2.5-day route doing PB/PBC to the sites right at the gauging station, and then something with BM and the Hatchery is on the list.
