Gate Closure at Gabrieleno Trail Access Road

The gate at the foot of the Gabrieleno Trail access road outside of the east gate will be periodically closed until further notice. There is an opening you can go through with your bike, but you'll need to ride on dirt for about 10 meters.

The East Gate entrance to JPL is not closed. The closure is on the other side of the bridge, preventing car access to the Gabrieleno Trail.

In the email thread on this topic, it was noted that not everyone rode to Lab on the Gabrieleno Trail, which is safer than Explorer Road. 

If you've never taken this route, here's a northbound photo journey from the intersection of Windsor Ave. and Ventura St.:

There's a fork near the Lab, take the LEFT FORK

Closed gate, but it's surmountable -- stay to the right for ~10 meters:

Opening in the fence within sight of the East Gate JPL entrance:

Reverse these steps when leaving Lab:

Safe travels!
