If that gate is open, that would be a sweet way in for the vans. I remember Blackstar as a pretty smooth run too.

The alternative of going up Maple Springs (at the back end of Silverado Canyon) gets rougher than some would probably like pretty fast.

EDIT:
This page lists regularly-updated gate (and road) conditions/closures for the Cleveland National Forest:

Do you need any help getting fixed or home ?

Only grabbed one quick shot today.
Nice to see some vanners and shoot the breeze.


Really hope for a Divide run next time!
