Just back from Horseshoe Meadows......much to my surprise, the road is still closed at the last gate which is about half to three quarter mile to Cottonwood Trailhead.

There were about 30 plus cars parked at the gate.

I really don't understand this, but you are planning a visit soon, I'd call the lone Pine Visitor's Center for road conditions.

Thanks Paul. Appreciate the report.
@Inyo_NF just tweeted:

"Onion Valley Campground is now open. Cottonwood Lakes walk-in, Cottonwood Pass walk-in & Horseshoe Meadows Equestrian CG's are also now open, but with no water & no fees - waiting on a water line repair. Horse stalls are in the process of being set back up in the equestrian site."

Great news since I plan on driving up to Lone Pine on Friday and hiking both Saturday and Sunday.

Now, I wonder if the weather may be a little unsettled since Mammoth is expecting some showers.

Thanks Rico
