Anyone know if fs25 is open yet?

Anyone know if fs25 is open yet? I checked the forest service web site and the last report was 5/26. Sounded like the gates were still closed at that time? Can anyone confirm the road is open or still closed.

Closed. Probably until early July 2016. See in particular "at a glance" from the link below. North side is open to one-way traffic to Jct. Rd 99 & only one side of the road is open. South side closed to snow.

More info: Gifford Pinchot National Forest - Forest Road 25

I think what Rich wanted to know was if anyone can confirm this first hand.

Unfortunately, I can't offer any first hand info either, and the last I heard was that the south gate was still locked. However, that report was from about a month or so ago.

Sadly, gone are the days when one of our more adventuresome souls would go up and either go around or under the gates (rumor has it that DRZ400SM's can be slid under those gates very easily... That's if they have good frame sliders of course) to get an advanced look at the seasonal roads of the Gifford Pinchot NF.

I appreciate the quick responses. Unfortunately my friend from St Louis texted to say he has to cancel his trip out here.

Not that you probably didn't try.
