FR 300

Had some coworkers come back from camping at Knoll Lake. Road was quite rough on the way in but as they were leaving a roadgrader was working on the road just west of Woods Canyon Lake.

Be advised that FR 300 between SR 87 and FR 141 will be subject to delays of up to 1 hour while semi-trucks deliver aggregate for road resurfacing. Deliveries began 9/14 and are expected to continue for at least 3 weeks.

10 miles of FR300 from SR 87 are completed with the aggregate. It's in the best shape I've seen in awhile.

Would say deep sinking gravel or good for biking?

Hard packed. Other than traffic, should be no problem for biking. It's even slightly less dusty :)

Nice! Traffic not really a problem unless I can't scoot over to the side of the road a bit, but that's where the super deep gravel seems to be, on the sides.

@ALMAL
Road resurfacing continues and daily closures/delays are ongoing.

I would not want to ride a bike on any part of the new aggregate road surface that isn't in the packed double-track made by heavier vehicles. Unless maybe if you have one of those pfancy pfat tire bikes.

The only stretch that has been resurfaced with aggregate is ~7 miles between approximately FR 147 and FR 123. Other segments have had some grading work but no aggregate surfacing.
