SJ.
Mt Hamilton Road is only on the west side. The east side is San Antonio Valley Road to the Junction. Del Puerto goes to Patterson, Mines to Liverwurst.

The washout is past Grandview Restaurant where the road goes on the east side of the hill, before Grant Ranch and Quimby.

I'll check it out today. Bummer.

I just rode up there a bit ago.
Wow. That is a substantial void of (Mt Hamilton) road. I rode around and past stuff on the Black Dream, but I wonder how long even that access is going to last. I better contact my county supervisor, Dave Cortese. It would be good if you guys contactacted yours about this vital roadway to the Junction, where there is a local business we want to support. Or something.

Can confirm, rode up today from Livermore...was an absolute obstacle course!! Gravel and mud mid turn every where, fun to practice those supermoto sliding skills. The floodings from previous posts had gone down by a few inches but still present, I'd almost hydroplaned on one such crossings.

Junction was closed today due to a "malfunctioning water pump"? At least that's what one of the many cyclists who tried to stop for water had told me.

Del Puerto Canyon was surprisingly in better condition than Mines...

Also rode it yesterday with a buddy.

Lots of gravel coming down from Livermore on the climb up in the middle of turns. Multiple mud slides past the 1 lane section, and sections of the road completely covered in mud and gravel. At least 3 active water crossings with 1-2" tall streams. Lots of sliding on my part.

Oh, and cold.

Rode Mt.Hami today via Quimby. Except for couple major slides, San Jose side is not that bad. Back side is also in okay shape given all the rain.

Hit Mines through Mt Hamilton Sunday. Had a lot of pavement to my party. Mt Hamilton road is easily passed by 2 wheels. And the light traffic make it a bonus. I don't think we passed more than 15 cars from Livermore to San Jose. The river is running and water falls abound! The junction was still shuttered from whatever hit them. Was one of the better rides close to home.

Mt.Hami is in ok shape so you can make up for the time lost on Mines.
Rode Mt.Hami to the Junction today. Same as last week. Road is still closed and they have not touch any of the main mud slides. Some fresh sand as you get close to the top. Back side still in good shape. Quimby also in good shape. Still dirt in the middle of few corners but in good shape.
