This is one of the better ways to ride Tronsen Ridge. Leaving a vehicle at the bottom of the 5 mile road and shuttling up to FS 7240. Tronsen Meadow trail is pretty steep with a few good hike a bike sections. Once you are up the Tronsen Ridge trail is spectacular.

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 :)
