I'm heading out there the weekend of the 12th-15th.

The NPS site has almost all roads listed as "Closed."

http://www.nps.gov/deva/planyourvisi...conditions.htm

What does "closed" actually mean? You can't enter? You'll get ticketed and busted if you go around a "closed" sign?

Some of this doesn' make a lot of sense: Wildrose and Emigrant Pass closed? That's paved. Mustard Canyon and 20 Mule Team closed?!? That's graded, graveled, easy stuff down in the valley floor. But there are folks on here saying they did the gnarly stuff (Lippencott, Saline, etc.).

This will be a newb group I'm with, but the NPS site is making it sound like even the easy tour stuff (Dante's View, Emigrant, Wildrose, Mustard, etc.) is closed...?

What happens if you just go around a "Closed" sign?
