This is old news to some, but Lumsden road was closed for the entire boating season last year due to a landslide. Folks could still hike in to run the Main Tuolumne and have the shuttle company drive gear in on four wheelers, but it added extra expense and was a pain in the butt. In January the Forest Service spent $750,000 to get this road opened again. The road opening allows access to Meral’s Pool raft launch, Lumsden Campground, South Fork Campground, and Lumsden Bridge Campground. Meral’s Pool is both the standard put-in for the Main Tuolumne and the take-out for Cherry Creek.
