Are they patrolling regularly? Day and night?

Could be a good way to make some freelance uber style money. Offer rides from cisco to staging area on eagle lakes. And back.

Ok then the logging trucks can deal with my dually and trailer going down the road instead. If a log truck can make surely I can. I'll just park somewhere wide past where they are logging. Brilliant logic

Their words. the concern was kids on quads vs logging trucks. People bomb that road on UTV's, you going 5 mph with your truck & trailer probably isnt a crash risk. Agree with it or not, that was the logic

heading up there tomorrow..i have only parked at eagle lakes staging area and I have been told that is sketchy although I have never had a bad experience leaving my tow rig there. .....I have a green sticker rig, so are my options to drive tow rig up rattlesnake rd and park past the area around the rattlesnake/signal peak split, or park at eagle lakes staging? dont want to tow all the way to meadow.

Thanks in advance

You can park at Cisco Grove for $10/day and take the trail that parallels the highway.

Looks like the flows are at 330, so be safe.

Yep, just take the paved road past the Cisco store until it turns to dirt.


Also, some people sure are being whiny about this. It's not like there isn't 2 other entrances to the trail

thank you very much for the help
Id rather stay out of their way if i can
another question...if i get to cisco at 3-4am and take off to the trail, is there going to be an issue as long as i pay when i get back on sunday? do they have a self pay envelope drop or anything??
Thanks

if you leave money in the envelopes drop them in the mail slot in the door, i made the mistake of putting the envelope back on the wall because someone else had put theirs back on the wall and there was no sign or anything indicating what to do with the envelope, some worthless thief stole the envelopes

Eagle lakes is very sketch. I still can't understand why the person would steal the stereo face and the tire warranty paperwork, or a warn winch relay setup, or another stereo face from the same glove box the trucks spare keys were in, but not take the truck. cough sierra club cough.

I have some updated information. The logging hours of operation and road closure, to OHV vehicles, are limited to 3am to 5pm Monday through Friday. No closure on the weekend. If you plan of using Rattlesnake Road this year I would print these out and carry them with you just in case you need to present them to the traffic enforcement people.

So are they running the logging trucks on the weekend as well? Doing a family camping trip at Cisco Grove this weekend and not sure I want to be listening to logging trucks at 3 am.

You should be fine. The freeway will drown out any logging truck noise.
