    Road is still closed. Sign says cars will be towed. What the heck. We drove over here to see it and cannot.

      I am still waiting on confirming for sure the road can or cannot be accessed from either end.

    You cannot get to the trailhead any more. Road is Closed and there are signs that Vehicles will be towed if you park and walk in.
