Sometimes I have time to go exploring, sometimes I don't. Such is modern life. Thanks for the info nonetheless.

Larch Mt. road is still "closed" at MP10 but the road is snow free to the top and in the parking lot. Lots of riders today. Nice having a closed section of traffic free road for the last 4.5 miles. Still 3 feet of snow around the parking lot though. Quite a sight to behold on such a warm day.

I wish they would just open the gate, so cyclists do not get yelled at by hikers for ignoring the "no wheeled vehicles" sign, which is probably intended for solely during the winter months when skiers use the paved road.

Ironically the irate hikers often have off-leash dogs...

The parking lot and trails still have feet of snow. They probably don't want the hassle of people hiking in unprepared and getting stuck on the path to the top.

As for the hikers, if they're being irate, just ignore them. Keep on riding.
