Default Rollins Pass/Jenny Creek Trail--open?

Anyone know if Rollins Pass and Jenny Creek trails are open? I imagine there may be some snow, but don't know if they were impacted by flood...

Thx

Well since no one else is wanting to help I'll take a guess- I suspect the area fared alright with the floods, with no significant washouts. I base that solely on 1 data point from club member who lives up there, who said it "wasn't that bad." As for snow, yes at this point it's likely a no go- Rollins Pass generally gets pretty socked in by this time, unless your 40 is on 40" tires at 3psi you may not be able to get up there. But again, total guess.. if you go for it, go early, just in case you need the rest of daylight for getting unstuck. And be sure to post up pics if you get up there!

That area was not affected by the floods. I too suspect there is snow by now

Thanks so much for the replys!

We went for it yesterday. There is snow, but we made it anyway. We went up on Rollins Pass, and came back down on Jenny Creek Trail. All in my stock 4Runner:-)

Jenny Creek Trail was not easy, but can still be done. All in all, an epic trip.
