Crabtree Road Stanislaus NF Closure Extended

Post by maverick » Thu Jun 20, 2019 12:21 pm

The forest just extended the closure order STF-16-2019-07 for Crabtree Road due to continued snow. Estimates are by June 30 the road should open. See the closure order and map at

Thanks to Summit OHV recreation specialist Uddom Som for this great photo from June 4 on Crabtree Road.

It will melt! Someday!

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member:

As of 7/7 the road to Crabtree Trailhead was still closed at the Gianelli/Crabtree junction.

Morning 7/4 there were many cars (almost 100?) parked by the side of the road. Some people camped in tents there. Afternoon 7/7 most cars were gone.
