Anyone have any idea when the MLH is opening? I can see on Sentinel Hub that it's clear of snow. I was hoping to ride my bike on the closed highway tomorrow and not have to deal with cars.

Deer Creek Gate apparently opens on Friday. Barlow to Bedal TBD.

Awesome thank you! I had a feeling they would open it for the weekend. I just don't want to ride up to the pass with no traffic and then encounter cars on the way down if they open the gate behind me.

Rode to Barlow Pass on Tuesday and didnít see anyone but the logging crew clearing the road. You will have a great ride. 👍🏻

For a good time call: 1-800-SLD-ALDR.

I got an odd email from Recreation.gov pertaining to my reservation at Bedal Campground in 3 weeks:
Quote:
This is an update related to your reservation at Bedal Campground. The dates affected are 5/29/2023 - 9/23/2023. Barlow Pass is closed. To access the campground you need to use the Darrington, WA route.
This seems to imply that the road is staying closed all summer. But I can't find any reference to a long-term closure online. So more likely, it's just Recreation.gov being dumb as is their habit. Can anyone confirm which it is? I know that regardless, the road might not be open in 3 weeks, although usually it would be open by late June. And I can easily check current status closer to my trip.
