    Yep, twice.

    Fun trail with 4 or 5 small water crossings (in spring time). Its not very long, maybe takes 1 hr to complete. If you enter the trail from Upper Big Tujunga Cyn Rd this trail is ok for 2wd because you will be mostly be headding down hill. If you enter from Angeles Forrest Hwy there is a steap uphill section that would be tough for a 2wd without a locker.

    Last time I went the brush was overgrown in some places, but I believe that the fires burned that whole area so it may be closed...

    This is where you enter from Upper Big Tujunga.

    I am open to go anytime, as long as it is still open after the fires.

    Im down for a run up here but I really doubt it will be open anytime soon, last time I did Lynx Gulch was about two months ago, started off at Upper Big Tujunga, ended up near the Ranger Station near Mill Creek Summit, then from Mill Creek Summit went to Mt Pacifico and from there I ended up near Hwy 2 (angeles crest) near Chilao Flats

    Last time I was out there they opened up Hwy 2 all the way to Wrightwood so I drove all the way thru and found some trails near Big Pines I think they cross Big Pines Hwy.. Also wanted to try the trail from Mt Pacifico to Littlerock, theres lots of trails up there if you have enough time

    I was in the area on friday and I can confirm it is closed.

    Comming from the 14 fwy, Angeles Forrest Hwy is closed at Mt. Emma Rd. and Aliso Cyn is closed at Angeles Forrest Hwy.

    Not sure about getting there from the 210 Fwy side but I am sure its closed too.

    Derek do you know by any chance if you can still hit up the indian canyon trail still? i was lookin at the closure page and looks like its still open, its not in the closure area. where did you take these pics from? is the entrance to the calcite mine still open?

    You may be right cause Indian canyon drops you off right at Soledad Canyon so you might be able to start off from there and run Indian Canyon to the top near Mt Gleason, although im sure if a ranger or law enforcement sees you they will probably tell you its closed cause the top is near Mt Gleason and thats where the 2 fire fighters died.

    I was able to take Aliso Cyn from Soledad all the way to Angeles Forrest, but it was closed at the top.

    So, the mine road to Alsio Cyn should be open. There were a lot of SoCal edison Crews, and ATT crews working all along aliso cyn but no formal closures.

    I've been. A friend of mine took me out there. It was my first time offroading and I had a blast. I live only 5 minutes away so if you guys decide to go, hit me up! Here are some pics...

    EDIT: Somehow forgot about the fires we had here. :facepalm: It's most likely closed.
