road closures due to storm damage in Cali

So, it seems there are many roads to our favorite trialheads that are closed indefinitely due to storm damage this winter. This includes Slickrock and McKinley Grove at the moment. some of the pics posted on the FS sites are wild.
I imagine more will crop up as the snow melts and crews can do evaluations.

Slickrock Rd is closed until Dec, at least. This may or may not affect getting to at least one end of the trail, however.

check the Pirate thread on this for more info.

FS has Closed some Major Trails for 17...... - Pirate4x4.Com : 4x4 and Off-Road Forum

"Between January and March 2017, a series of strong storms hit California, causing extensive damage to roads, trails, infrastructure, and ecosystems on all national forests in the state. Stanislaus National Forest suffered landslides and road failures on all ranger districts.
To see a map of the extent of the damage, click on the Forest Closure Area Map link on the right. The maps and the damage list are as of April 24, 2017 and will be updated each Wednesday. Updated information will include the date it was posted to the web page. Photos may be viewed on Flickr at https://www.flickr.com/photos/usfsre...h/33905889850/.
The Forest Closure orders may be viewed on the link at right. The areas listed in the Forest Closure orders will be closed until at least Dec. 31, 2018.
Under normal conditions, seasonally closed roads open in mid-April. The record amounts of snow mean many roads may remain impassible for many weeks past that date. View extended seasonal closures due to weather conditions.

Any of the land use people (in the know) who work with the FS want to try & see if we can help open some of these back up sooner?
