According to the sign at the top of Lynx/start of Pacifico, the Pacifico route is closed from sometime in November (15th?) through, IIRC, May 15th. I may have the dates wrong, but pretty sure on the months.
On another note, the FS recording for the San Gabriel Canyon (Azusa Cyn) OHV area says that the Rincon Shortcut is supposed to be open again "late spring/early summer". We can only hope.
