Carl, as of this writing the Ventana Camp Trail is closed along with the rest of the Lower Pine Ridge Trail System per the LPNF Website. The Status of this trail system will change sometime next week.

There are a couple of articles out there that can give more details.

Is the Ventana Camp Trail Open?

Postby Carl Mounteer on Wed Apr 07, 2021 5:31 pm

I checked this report for the Ventana Camp Trail to ascertain its condition and whether it is open or closed. The report is highly ambiguous: the language I highlighted in red states the trail is "PARTIALLY OPEN"; but below that it states, in blue type, that "...the trail remains closed to the general public at this time."

I would be grateful to anyone who can dispel this confusion and clarify whether the trail is open or closed
