The Middle Fork Road was closed about two miles before the trailhead due to washouts from the winter rains. USFS says it may be open by June 30 2005 but could be longer???

The road is open now, but I recommend 4x4 or high clearance. Our scout troop went up Friday 6/17/05 and to my surprise the gate was open (it was closed when I had checked 6/3/05). A tractor has restored the major washouts, but the road is still heavily rutted and in bad condition. We got to within 1/2 mile of the trailhead when my Honda Accord got stuck badly in loose dirt and rock. It took us about 45 minutes of digging and jacking up the car to get out. We hiked the remaining part of the road and it was much worse than the section where I got stuck.
