Those in the Upstate, Horse Pasture Road

Anyone in the Upsate know if Horse Pasture Road to Jumping Off Rock is clear since the remnants of Hurricane Irma went through?

I'm thinking of going up there this weekend if I don't have to work.

Go for it. Remember, hunting season starts soon so other roads will be open as well.

For anyone trying to go, I just went today and a gate was closed towards the southern entrance. I got on the trail off of 178 near NC and got most of the way, only to have to double back and do the entire thing in reverse. Just fair warning!

I still haven't made it up there yet. Something is always coming up to keep me from it.

I know I'm really late to the conversation, but thought I'd toss this in for others that are just finding this thread:

To ride Horse Pasture Rd, DO NOT try to start on the south end of the trail... This part of the road is the gated entrance to a resort community. Instead, start at the north side of the trail, just off Hwy 178. On Google Maps, search "Eastatoe Gorge Trail Parking."

It's an out-and-back trail that took us about 3 hours round trip (with a few stops along the way).

Duke Energy maintains the trail just enough to get some of their trucks through. It's bumpy and a little rutted out in places (definitely not somewhere you'd want to take the Prius) but overall not bad.

Thanks for the update.

Horsepasture

Some other info.
Road to Jump off rock open year round. Gates beyond there close for summer May 10th, so this weekend last one before then.
Been up there twice this spring, roads in "good" shape, nothing any vehicle with any kind of clearance can't handle.
Was a little bummed because last time I went, the road down to the old boat landing was closed, where I really wanted to go, because they were doing controlled burning.

We had a Jeep group go 3 months ago or so and it was open and cleaned up. Some great scenic views.
