Default Clear Creek Fire Trails Open?

Hey, now two of my friends have told me that Clear Creek firetrails are open for 4x4 use -- just not any of the unmarked trials (you have to stay on the fire trails). Can anyone confirm or provide any info on this?

Ok, dug up some info from this site:
http://www.foccma.org/html/home/LatestNews.php

Though the last paragraph I quoted makes me chuckle. Only Americans need to stay on the trails, I guess...or the writer is a bit over patriotic.

"The Best News in 23 Months

Today April 6, 2010 the San Benito County Board of Supervisor made history by voting unanimously to reopen all of the closed roads in the Clear Creek Management Area. This does not mean that you can go out and ride in Clear Creek, but you can once again travel any of the county roads without the fear of being ticketed or thrown in jail. This was done over the requests of the BLM’s Hollister Field Office Manager Rick Copper who asked that the board keep the roads closed till the Record of Decision comes out. Mr. Copper was asked by the board when that was and he replied maybe as early as January 2011?

We ask that all Americans who will be visiting and driving thru the Clear Creek Management Area in the near and foreseeable future to observe the rules by staying on the county roads and not go off of them. "
