I wasn't aware of the closure at the park entrance. I went the Briceburg way this spring, heading down the switchbacks. I saw the fork to old Yosemite Road, right after Bower Cave, and wanted to try it. But if it's a turn around, I won't even bother.

I'll be riding a KLR so plating isn't a problem, but there's an upward limit of how rough a road I can handle on such a big bike.

The road is not bad. From where the blockage is, you can see the toll booth. If you could follow the road it would come out 1/2 mile inside the park. It just is not going to happen.
