If you are coming out to do some trails there are several doable trails in that area. It is actually doable year round. The only problems is there is supposed to be closers from Jan 1st - June 15th on many of the trails for wild life and environmental impact studies so if there are signs posted like these don't get caught disregarding them.

We have been out doing some trails this season and many of them are on the list don't have any of those signs and the gates that close the trails are wide open. (Not sure what is really going on)

I hope you have a good time, there is a lot of cool places to explore down that way.

Good advice! Thanks!

Yes, half of the idea of the trip is to go off-roading in my new Cherokee, the other half is to do hiking, fishing, kayaking, backpacking, stuff like that.

The plan is to do the "gold belt byway tour" and do as many trails that branch off that all along the way.

Do you know if any of these trails will be closed in May?
  • the bank loop
  • bull park
  • mount rosa trail
  • mount baldy trail
  • upper gold camp road
  • the road to skaguay reservoir and beaver creek
  • any other trails I should be aware of

thanks!

I am not sure on those trails, but don't foresee them being on the list. They are on my to do list with my wife. As they are much tamer than the usual trail we do. I think if I am not mistaken one of the trails is closed do to a flood a couple years ago. Have you seen this couples video?


I eventually want to transition into overland travels like this some day.

Check the MVUM Map. Not all roads that get seasonal closure will have gates or signs. Here in the Bighorns, Pryors and Blackhills, maybe 25% of the roads have gates and maybe 50% have signs, but over 90% of the roads get seasonally closed. you have to check the MVUM Map distributed by the USFS.
