I know a few people biked this portion of Old La Honda, and you know that sometimes I see “road closed” signs as an invitation to bike or walk the road if it’s not too obviously impassable, but San Mateo County Public works says the western Portion of Old La Honda Road between Skyline and Highway 84 isn’t safe. Per SMC Public Works:
The road is officially closed where it is failing to all modes of traffic. The hillside that supports the road is actively failing and we do not consider it safe for any users. The closure to all was effective last Friday, so while folks may have biked through the area this past weekend, they should not have done so. Thanks for checking.
SMC Public Works doesn’t normally post information online about road closures, but apparently this is enough of an issue that they reached out.
