Road Closure Alert - Schnebly Hill Road is currently closed b/c of unsafe road conditions. You'll have to park at the main entrance trail head about a mile from the Y off 179. It only added about 25 mins of hiking to get to the pull-out for Wild Wild West, and other routes in that area.
Not sure how long or often it gets closed, but seemed to be just b/c of some snowy and muddy sections that would rut out the road - so maybe it's just short term and temporary.
