I tried last week and it was closed. They have two gates up now. I have been told it opens mid March. I figured the 16th was close enough.
Have fun if its open. Make sure to post if you make it out there.

Bumpus is very technical in certain spots, just be careful & maybe have a good spotter. This picture is from our last ride up there last year. It took 2 winches to get him back on the rubber.
I'd also recommend taking a chain saw since the trail has been closed for the last few months, very likely to have some trees down here & there.

Well, did you go to Lake Houser yesterday or somewhere else? If so, any pics? I never heard of Lake Houser before but I looked it up and its only a few minutes from my SIL so I may check that out sometime.
