Thanks for the info about that gate! Are there interesting hiking opportunities or views beyond that gate? And don't forget that not all Vietnam vets are nuts! Just some of us--and we are nuts for the Middle Fork!
Last weekend the DNR moved the Middle Fork road closure back to Valley Camp. On the weekend officers were posted at the closure to enforce it. All DNR land and trails are closed, so don't park before the closure and walk in.

That made me change my plans for the day (I was going to do some solo weeding on USFS land). I thought I'd check out the other area trailheads to see what the closures looked like.
Little Si trailhead closure
Mount Si trailhead closure
Teneriffe trailhead closure
Teneriffe bus turnaround trailhead closure
CCC road trailhead closure
North Bend ranger station closed
Then decided to drive up the North Fork. I hadn't been up that way since last summer.
Sunday Creek bridge
Big slide along the North Fork river a little past Sunday Creek. Google Earth imagery shows this starting in about 2009, but it seems to still be eroding.

Spot along FR 57 where the creek is running close to the road
My turn around spot on FR 57. The snow got deeper here and I could see deep snow ruts ahead. I wasn't even close to the Bare Mountain trailhead.
View down to Lennox Creek. The old road has been completely washed away
