Seneca Rocks Mt. Guides has been getting many calls from people who think the rocks are closed. They are not. The "Seneca Trail" (aka the tourist trail) to the observation deck on the North Peak is closed until August. The metal arch bridge is also closed. Access to the rocks is gained by using Roy Gap Rd. All "climbers" trails and all parts of the rock are open.

The bridge is still there but the Forest Service put a gate on it while the trail work is happening.

About a month ago the gate had been pulled down but I don't know what the current status is. It's pretty much just as easy to walk across at Roy Gap Rd. as long as the water isn't too high.

And for what it's worth, I've never seen the causeway on Roy Gap Road flooded. I'm sure it happens, but when it's been raining that hard, you probably don't want to be climbing anyways.

I've seen it flooded twice. One a couple weeks ago as we've been getting plenty of rain and the other time was when Isabelle passed through.

Usually it's low enough to just roll up the pants and cross when flooded but losing your footing would be epic. Especially with a pack on.

Would be hilarious to see someone take that swim!
