    Default Petersville conditions?

    Does anyone know if the trail north from the forks is clear of snow up to the bridge over Peters Creek?

    The latest I've heard, which was Sunday afternoon, the road was closed at the site of the old forks roadhouse. The report was the road on past the closed sign was super soft, but no snow was present. I guess the state is trying to get the road dried out and firmed up so it doesn't get torn up by traffic. Report further said that at the end of the pavement the trees were green and at the forks roadhouse no green and ice in the shade.

    Thanks bmunsell, your reply gave me a hint on where to look for more info. Here is the link to the state website.
    http://511.alaska.gov/alaska511/mappingcomponent/index
    According to that page the road is closed there except to ATV traffic.

    Trail condition was good this last weekend on our Memorial weekend ride. No snow anywhere.

    Where trucks allowed beyond the forks roadhouse cabins or just ATV's?

    Many trucks just went around the sign/barrier. By Saturday the barrier had been moved and traffic was going straight through. Don't know who moved it. Road was mostly dry and in good shape.
