Is McCubbins Gulch Ridable?

Hey Guys
Looks like Government camp and Blue Box pass are totally free of snow so I'm wondering if McCubbins is clear also.
Going to take my boys camping tomorrow night and ride Sat and would like to go there is its open.
Thanks for the info!

Surprisingly I couldn't find a current conditions page for the Mt. Hood National Forest OHV areas. Where are all those OHV funds really going..?
But from what you can see on the ODOT cams it looks to be pretty warm and clear at both Blue Box Pass and Frog Lake...

East Fort Rock is great until you get in the trees. Then there's hidden frozen puddles everywhere waiting to getya!
Thinking McCubbins will be like that too.

Was up there 2 or 3 weeks backs & this is what stopped us:


Then this was at the West entrance to Barlow:


Notice the little addition in the tree to the right, mainly because the nice wooden morticed gate was ripped from it hinges by something large a couple of years back, the stoopid fuckers :


They've had a couple of falls of snow up there at Timberline, but nothing lasting.
Your call, sorry i don't have fresher news, further east might be more fun, enjoy.

For what it's worth we drove FS48 over to Wamic this week and hit one little patch of snow that's barley worth mentioning. Three weeks ago there was a pile of snow bermed up in front of 48 where it meets 35 and this week it was completely melted. Looks more like June up there right now.

Well crap, were up on the mt now.
If the campground is closed we will just camp down the road.
Just heard from some friends that rode out there 2 weeks ago and they said its snow free with s few trees down

The link matloik provided says it's closed from 12/1 - 3/31 for winter deer habitat. We have a few places over here that close for the same thing and it's a pretty hefty fine if you get caught riding in them...

Here's the USFS page for McCubbins

http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/mthood...stelprd3823141

The Rider Planet does have more info, but the USFS one does say this.

"McCubbin’s Gulch OHV Riding Area is subject to a seasonal closure to protect winter range for Elk and Deer populations during the winter months."

Mc cubbins is completely fenced and has cattle guards doesn't it? And then the Cowboys move in the cows to range till September. I don't get what they are selling.

Beef!

Doesn't seem right if that's the case. Wouldn't surprise me in the least though.

I dont think it is completely fenced. Ive followed alot of the fence line and I think it is supposed to be the reservation line.
