As reported, the Camp Robinson trails are getting good use and are in great shape. I got the following in a note from a reliable unofficial source:
Parking: The regular CARP parking lot for TA02 is open for parking. Winter
Parking area remains open until further notice.
Closed Trails/Restricted Area: 5 mile, Dogwood (South of Merlin), Freeway,
Yucca, Christmas Tree, Christmas Tree Extension, and Ten Bridges remain
closed until further notice. Currently when parking in the regular parking
lot, riders will need to utilize Pipeline, Zig Zag, or Double Dip to access
Shipwreck and the rest of the open trails.
SAFETY: Riders should avoid leaning trees, lodged limbs in treetops, and
other debris. Riders need to remain out of the logging areas until the
affected trails are reopened.
Coming Soon: Dogwood has been marked and will be cleared and reopened
in the next few weeks.
The other open trails offer plenty of action and the re-opening of Dogwood will do a lot to restore normal access. For now, I would still suggest using the winter parking area unless you want to ride Pipeline-Shipwreck-Merlin or Zig-Zag. The riders who have rediscovered Camp are excited about the trail conditions and there are actually positive comments about the Sportsmans Pass system and the less complicated sign-in procedure. Of course, that feedback comes from the "haves". If you're a mountain biker and you're still a "have not", head out to Camp on a Tuesday or Thursday between 10:00 and 6:00 to get your pass.
