A shorter trail option than the entire Tronsen Ridge, with a focus on those shuttling nearby Mission Ridge and Devils Gulch trails. This gives you the chance to see the top of Mount Lillian, the large exposed rock face falling off the North side and descend to the meadows below. Easy shuttle with Beehive road providing access for drop off and pickup

      USFS closure map updated July 11 did not include Tronson Ridge. Signs dated July 6 were still posted at the 5 mile road as of 7/14 but no indication of any closure otherwise. https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd586557.pdf Dry/Loose but still fun from Mt Lillian to Magnet Creek. If you want hero dirt, as expected, go elsewhere :)
