Massive rock sliders and tree down on top of rocks. No route threw or around. Will have to back track.

Downed Tree
Local landowner blocked the road by collapsing rock face. Vehicle sized boulders will require heavy machinery to remove. DBBB have tried to open the road, but the county is unwilling to take legal action.

Washout
Approaching from the HWY 15 side involves lots of downed trees and the trail seems to transition into a smaller trail used for pumpjacks with lots of tubing sticking out of the ground.
