I went to Alum Rock yesterday for some laps and rangers told me they were closing the park on Saturday for fire danger. This might be late news but maybe I can save someone a trip there this afternoon.
thanks for the notice. personally i think alum is a boring place to ride. If you don't mind doing pavement once in a while, try going up Sierra Rd., it's got an 11.5% grade climb and it's not too far from the Alum Rock entrance at Penitencia. The road will take you back down to Calaveras/Piedmont Rd.
