Hey everyone! This trail is open HOWEVER, beyond the rock step I have pictured above, the trail is not open to motor vehicles!!!! If you are going up the trail to the top of Devil’s knob if you look to the left of the rock step you will see an old gate that used to be installed to stop people from driving up to the top. We were stopped by forest Rangers and they informed us that they could give us citations for driving up to the top. They let us off with a warning. Do not drive passed the old gate/rock step, or you will be at risk of receiving a citation, or warning if you are caught by a ranger. It is unclear in ON X where the MVUM ends. After showing the ranger the app and how it looks, they declared on X off-road to be out of date and wrong.
