I checked out West Fork to the Cogswell Reservoir today. Yep, the road is gated. But not necessarily free of cars. I saw a small caravan of utility trucks (power company?) while going to and returning from the dam. So I kept my speed in check, with a lot of the subtle blind turns.
I think this would be a great ride for those with family/friends that don't ride a lot, just drive and park off hwy 39. The gradient was about 1-3% until you hit the dam with pitch in the teens, ouch.
