According to the ASRA website and an email I received from Lauren Shoemaker, the ASRA State Park Superintendent II, the Confluence Trail reopened on Feb 8, 2024. I haven't been out there, so I'm not sure of the condition (probably wet, given all the rain last weekend), but it is no longer closed/off limits.
