Hello everyone, Bedford Motorway is a wonderful trail that leads from Riverside into the Cleveland National Forest. The trail was closed in 2021 by a disgruntled property owner who was tired of all the traffic going trough his property as Bedford was the last trail leading into CNF, on the Riverside portion, due to other trail closures. There is little to no action being done to open this trail, and according to CNF is closed indefinitely. We need the locals and the 4x4 community to help fight these closures of our forest. Email Joe Rosen at to join the Cleveland Caretakers if you're a local. if not reach out to CORVA to show them there is an interest in keeping Cleveland open. Finally email Ranger Vance at to show the CNF that we will no longer stand this closure. Thank you!

Sounds like they are making progress on getting this reopened. But still closed.

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.
