Reds Meadow Valley Closed For The Season

Postby maverick » Tue Nov 01, 2016 11:38 am

Inyo NF:

The Reds Meadow Valley Road is closed for the season.
The Inyo National Forest makes every effort to keep the Reds Meadow Valley Road open through October 15th. After October 15th, the road remains open until natural conditions such as snow or ice warrants closure of the road. The road temporarily closed for a mudslide that occurred on October 16th but re-opened on October 21st to provided continued access to the valley and Devils Postpile National Monument into the late season.
The road closed (temporarily) for the incoming storm last Friday and remained closed for the season due to winter conditions.

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.
