Update- according to the forestry service webite the bridge was repaired. Advises that 4X4 is required. Last that I knew the road was in very bad condition. If you desicide to go please keep us posted as to what you think of the road.
We went up the Cheam in 2009 and road was still ok but I heard from people going last year, it is getting pretty bad with no repairs done at all. Did anyone go before the winter? Can Explorer 4X4 still make it up to the parking lot?
