I just drove up to the staging area for Drinkwater Flats. The gate across San Francisquito leading to Drinkwater is, as of 10pm tonight, open. Have fun!
Couldn't resist making a solo run to Drinkwater today - ended up running the whole thing, then hopping on House trail over to Del Sur ridge and riding that over to Deer Peak Junction (I think it was called?). Then took the descending route towards Bouquet Canyon Road before deciding to turn around and make the run all the way back the way I came. So much to explore out there I'll def be back. Ran into a 2 door XJ and a Tundra but otherwise not a soul in sight. Thanks again for checking out the gate the other day - wheeling this trail has been on my mind since.

Got lots of photos - although none of the truly steep and rutted parts as I was busy navigating them. A nice leisurely trail all in all with a few challenges and pucker moments to keep you on your feet.

I'm good for a trip up there. I am not sure it is open yet though. The gates have been locked. If the forest closure order is the same one that Las Padres is under, it extends thru 5/22/20. I have been over drinkwater flats. I know it's open

Man I thought it was! Got all wrapped up in the openings and didn't realize SG was still under a close order. What's open near LA, can't disappoint my son (or me) w this

Yeah just saw that too. How about we do some research for a noon run somewhere tomorrow? We'll find something online or a post here. Anyone here have a suggestion?

As of what date? I was up there this past Sunday and all was well. Been up many times in the last month.
I was there as well! In fact two weeks ago. Open and ready to go. Simply going to Google to get a pin for Kirk earlier today it said closed. I should have known it was bs

Thinking about an overnighter Thursday and Friday. The heat is a deterrent tho presently
