I think the BLM office in Monticello would be the place to call.

I think the Needles Visitor Center or Backcountry Office would be best since they are issuing permits to Salt Creek every day and should know if the trailhead is accessible or not.

Would they also know about Beef Basin?

Probably since they usually know what condition the road through Bobbys Hole is in since they also issue permits to Elephant Hill, but since he is going to Salt Creek he only needs to get to the Cathedral Trailhead on the way to Beef Basin (which is about 1,000 feet lower than the highest part of the road).

We havent had luck getting anyone to answer the backcountry office so may try Monticello BLM.

Have you tried the Visitor Center? Their hours are currently only from 9am until 1pm, and they are pretty busy during those times. (435) 259-4711

I was able to get through to the backcountry office last week (435-259-4351), so I'd say keep trying that too. I'll be in Salt Creek in a couple of weeks, but didn't ask about the roads (should have!). I called around Noon EST.

heard yesterday that Coyote Shuttle said the road was dry this past Saturday, so we are still moving forward for Thursday entry.

We drove to Cathedral butte on Monday and again yesterday after finishing the hike to collect the car. Had no problems either day - the road was dry. Also lots of water in salt creek all the way to peekaboo so no problems there either. Beautiful and fascinating hike.
