Definitely still closed. I got my hopes up for a minute when I hit dirt, but just past the fancy house on the left hand side, the gate is closed up tight. I think it sucks that I was only 10 miles away from Silverado canyon at that point but had to drive 29 miles out of the way to get around to the other way up the mountain. I hope this gets resolved somehow soon.

My good friend drove from the main divide road, and found the road closed. Same spot as the prior post. He had not read up on the road status from this site, or USFS. As a reminder, “know before you go”. Make sure to get as much information on the trails you ride.

I've been following activity on this trail due to conflicts with a property owner and the Bedford Road bisecting his property. As of today, Cleveland National Forest rangers have officially closed the trail until further notice. The GPX track of this trail does not include the section that crosses through the homeowner's property. The property is closer to the paved portion and near the other houses in the area (see photo).

Came down the Bedford Trail from Santiago Peak. Got there via Maple Springs Trail. When I got to the end of Bedford Trail to go into Corona, the trail was blocked by several red locked cables strung across with several signs stating private road and no trespassing. It being my first time on the trail, I believe it to be a public road. According to two of my off-road apps, it shows it as a public road. The road was impassable. Being new to the trail and driving off-road, I did not see any other trails that were public access. We ended up having to drive back the way we came, canceling other plans we had in Corona. Plus side though, I had more trail driving time.
