Cedar Grove Road Opening?

Post by Flamingo » Mon Apr 22, 2019 3:42 pm

Does anyone know if the road to Cedar Grove will open this weekend? I was hoping to visit Cedar Grove this Friday, if possible. My understanding is that Highway 180 to Cedar Grove typically opens the fourth weekend in April, but it varies some years. In the past it seems SEKI announced the opening date approximately one week beforehand. The current NPS website doesn't mention a date for 2019, which makes me think it's not opening anytime soon. I'm wondering. . . Does any HST member have special information about the status?
