I passed you two this morning on North Main Divide.

I thinkg the question here is regarding North Main Divide, north of the Jct of Indian Truck Trail and No. Main Divide. That gate will remain locked until Nov. 9th.

I think everyone understands that the main divide is closed North of the intersection of Indian Truck Trail.. I believe that last few posts were referring to the gate at the top of indian truck trail where it meets the main divide. As you know this is right next to the southern closure on the North Main divide.

The gate at the top of indian truck trail was locked when I rode on Friday as well. I rode North Main divide from Ortega Hwy towards Santiago Peak and I had planned on hanging a right (east) on Indian Truck trail and heading down to south Corona. The access to the peak was closed (no surprise there.. been that way since Oct of last year) but I was suprised to see the access to Indian Truck trail gated off. Indian truck trail has been open everytime I have ridden the main divide this year (which is about once a month) but the gate at the top of Indian truck trail was locked last Friday.

It sounds like others ran into this same gate closure.

Maybe it was closed off in anticipation of the potential for rain this past weekend? Than again if that was the case one would think the southern end of the Main divide would have been closed off as well... dunno?

So the opening is pushed back to Monday the 10th.......since thats my birthday I think a day off work will be in order. Should be pretty empty on a work day, if anyone wants to go shoot me a PM.

Rout if its open:

Meet up a silverado cafe at 9AM. Maple to main divide, over the peaks and down indian truck to toms farm for gas (maybe lunch) back up indian truck to ortega (maybe lunch at hells) back to OC though ortega for some twisty fun.

If its still no open on Monday we can go play around in holy jims so its not a total loss.

Maple Springs will be closed.

Maple Springs will be closed as of now due to the hazardous material from the mine clean up. They are trying to see if they can open it but for now it will stay closed.

I am ready with my new ride

Pointman, don't hate me, but I have decided to go small. The KTM 950 Adventure is more bike than I am rider. After collage, I did not ride for 20 years and the Orange Beast is more than I can handle, sooooo, I have purchased a Honda XR650L. It will be ready to ride about the same time the gate gets opened. Here is a picture just so you all will know who it is.

Wish I could join you Squids, but duty calls. My birthday is the 13th and it would be a nice b-day present to get to ride Saddleback. Post if the Silverado gate is open. It will be sweet when we get our local trail open again

Hey, there's nothing wrong with a 650, XL or otherwise.

I just (today) finished up Dual-Sporting an 05' KTM 450 MXC I bought a couple of weeks ago. I'll most likely get it plated in Nevada over Thanksgiving.

Bluhduh So, what about the gates???

As of today, I have no new news.

I also have heard nothing about Maple Springs NOT opening tomorrow.

Maybe someone in the OC can give us an update tomorrow???

Anyone check the gate at Maple Springs road today?

I called the Trabuco district office 3 times this afternoon and no one answered the phone.

I'm planning on going there tomorrow, unless someone knows for sure it's closed.

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/t...antiago-closed

"Maple Springs Road will remain closed until work associated with cleanup of tailings at the old Blue Light Mine is complete. The road could reopen as early as Thanksgiving weekend or early December, depending on when work is complete.

Some trails are going to remain closed: Harding Truck Trail and Silverado Truck Trail.
...
Rodriguez did not set a timetable for reopening the closed trails or the off-trail areas damaged by the Santiago fire."





Tried calling Trabuco district this morning to no avail. I'm still looking for a connection to Main Divide from OC, Ortega Hwy gets old after a while.

Open Trail

I was just up there Sunday and they had recently graded the road. With the recent rains it is pretty good shape.
