The gate was temporarily open this weekend
, but closed again this morning. There's a brand new sign on the east side at the top of the ridge, "End County Maintained Road". I have a feeling this may be permanent.
However, I did pass a grader that was going up from the Cache Creek side, so maybe it's just because of the rough winter. Yolo County hasn't even set up the picnic tables at that park on the east end of the road at Highway 16.
