Its open. They might close the one lane on the short stretch of burn area if they are working, but the wait isnt long for the other cars to come down or up. I was held up for less than 5 mintues....if you go that way, have your camera ready and snap a picture of Islip canyon Cool it will be the colorful one near the end of the burn area.

Anyone know if the Station Fire affected plans to open 39 to 2? Don't imagine it would, but not being able to get up there makes it seem like the whole damn place is gone entirely.

Anyone know how far the highway is REALLY open from down in Azusa? The Cal Trans site is (I think) useless as it says the road is closed from 6.5 miles south of Coldbrook, but I've read on here that its actually opened farther.

Yeah, they're smoking crack. It's open to about 1/2 mile south of Coldbrook. The trailhead for Smith Mountain/Upper Bear Creek is at the gate.

You guys are so frickin' awesome.

Looks like they've opened up several miles that have been closed for a long time.

How would you guys rate the Smith Mtn. trailhead parking area as far as safety is concerned (break-ins, theft, etc.)as  compared to the West Fork or Heaton Flat? Say on a Sunday morning between 6 and 10'ish in the morning.

I've only been up to that trailhead once since they've re-opened it.  Everything was nice and tidy on July 3, but there were some guys drinking in one of the pull outs near by.  Hard to say.  It's so close to the party crowd at W. Fork that inevitably it'll spill over, although it seemed better than W. Fork when I went there.  

The USFS needs to assign two LE rangers full time to the W Fork.

I go up there to climb at the crag right above the lot. I haven't seen any broken glass or signs of break-inns. I'm always within throwing distance of my car, though. I'd say it's OK.

Woo hoo!!

One caveat:
Quote:
Because Lake Road may not be getting plowed and because there is around 15 inches of snow in some areas (and more expected) it is not known whether there is any access to the campgrounds.

Sorry about your jaw. Sad   Hope you heal quickly

We didn't need chains, nothing special was required on the bike, and it was fun downhill. 25 miles of downhill, I think?

AW is about 982734967326% right with his comment. I'm very VERY happy that this place is open again, as there's a lot to do in the area and it's literally up my street, but there will likely be a lot of trash, graffiti, and craaaaaaaaaaaap everywhere by the end of the summer. C'est la vie, though.

How far of a walk/ride is it from the new closure location to Islip Saddle via the road? (and yes, I'm too lazy to get a map out and figure it out myself)

Hikeup, the gate that effectively marks the end of all vehicular northern traffic on R39 to the gate at Islip Saddle is 4.45 miles. The gate that's currently locked is 1.45 miles south of that. I'm not sure why it's not open to the furthest gate, as that section of road is in good condition.

About 4.5 miles - it's pretty awesome actually, if you zoom in close enough at the bottom you can tell the difference in road quality at the 1978 closure.

Caltrans is abandoning plans to reopen a 4.4-mile section of state Highway 39 in the Angeles National Forest between Crystal Lake and Wrightwood, citing rising costs, engineering challenges and a mandate to protect bighorn sheep.

Then they should give up ownership of it....which they wont. Its going to continue being a money pit and opportunity to cite people for walking on it.

good. pretty much all the reasons for opening up that section are B.S anyways, and everyone knew it was going to be a big PITA to keep open.

This reminds me of the road through Wildrose Canyon in Death Valley. It was originally paved, but the asphalt is washed out now. I assume that it dawned on Caltrans that it was impossible to keep that stretch repaired.

Sure. They were issuing tickets if people walked on Hwy39 past Upper Bear Creek trail....now the gate has moved north quite a bit is all.

I know they have to restore it to a natural state to give it to the Forest service, but thats what it should be then. Instead of continuing to spend even more maintaining a one lane emergency road.

I know they have to restore it to a natural state to give it to the Forest service, but thats what it should be then. Instead of continuing to spend even more maintaining a one lane emergency road.
 I think, if I understood things correctly, that it's actually cheaper to maintain the one-lane road than it is to restore it to its natural state.  Apparently restoration is quite expensive.

I'm not opposed to restoration; just stating what I've heard.
