Is the Gray Rock Trail Open?

Postby TCUTED » Mon Aug 20, 2012 1:22 pm

Does anyone know if the trail up Gray Rock has opened up since the Hewlett and High Park fires? There is no information available online, so I figured that someone here might have an idea!

Thanks!

Greyrock parking lot and trail were closed as of Sunday the 19th when I drove by.

It looks like the map you posted a link to has a date of 8.20.12. That is one day after I drove by it. Perhaps they opened it yesterday. I'm just letting you know that I drove by it on the 17th and the 19th, and it was on lock down both of those days. If you find that it's open, I'd like to know.

I can confirm that it is open. Was there yesterday.

Cool, sorry for the mis-information. Guess I was just a day early.

What about the Palace, just above the Mish? Is that open?

The parking area for the Palace was all coned off on the 19th, though that could have changed as well.
