I guess I should have specified.
Most of the closed areas are closed to traffic only.
You can still walk/bike thru most of these closed areas.
There are two trails, though, that I know of that are closed. trail 18 and trail 6 & 6A. Each of these trails has a cache, which means these two are probably not good choices to go after, till they open the trails.
Actually, West Meets East is the cache on one of these trails, and its a moot point, because Roadkill has not replaced it for the season yet anyway.
Because these trails have cliffs above them, I'm pretty sure they're closed due to falling rock.
The east gate is still closed as of today. You can still walk, bike, or horseback in, but its closed to vehicles.
That means you can still hit the caches on the east side, but it will add about 6 miles round trip to your hike for some of them...
Others on the east side are still easily accessed by road, and a short hike.
This is kinda why I volunteered for anyone thinking of coming down, give me a shout. I can probably help to let people know which caches are available, and the best ways to get to them if the road/trail into an area is closed.
