This gate is at the junction of Figueroa Mountain Rd and the Catway (aka Zaca Ridge Rd). Fig Mtn Rd is paved and the Catway is dirt. The Catway can get pretty rutted and muddy after rain so the Forest Service is pretty diligent about locking this gate.
We'll try our best to update if this gate is open or not but assume that if there has been recent rain that the gate will be locked. If we are wrong, please post a comment and we'll fix the information as quickly as we can.
