The unburnt areas have been open since Saturday, it turns out.

This forum page at has a bunch of details from mountain bikers who’ve scouted the place (scroll down to post 246).

Lots of familiar places are off limits for now: Coit and Mississippi Lakes, Poverty Flat, Bear Mountain, Orestimba Wilderness, Pacheco Camp, and Hobbs Road beyond Middle Fork of Coyote Creek (I’m assuming this is the Short Cut.) Also, the new visitors center at Bell Station is closed temporarily.

I feel like a recon hike is mandatory within the next few days.

Lots of burn pix at this guy’s flickr site.
