Rode through eastbound on 6/3/12. The gate on the west side was open, and it looks like some grading has occurred down to the entrance to the UC botanical gate near the old mine. Beyond that, there were some rock that had fallen just before the dam. The climb up to the ridge was easy, though the dried ruts from 4-wheeled vehicles made you pay attention. Downhill to Cache Creek was almost entirely motorcycle and mtb tracks dried in the mud and some fresher ones.
