This trail is open. Once you get to Johnson Ridge which is about 10-11 miles in, there is a gate across the road that says Private Property, so we weren’t able to do the last little loop as marked on the map. Otherwise it’s a nice drive.

Went a couple of days ago and the road leading to the trailhead was closed. Not sure if it was COVID-related or not, but disappointed after a drive up from LA.

Easy 2wd road. Nothing to write home about, but had some great lookouts, views, and scenery.
