Might want to double check on Middle Fork? Website says that is still closed:

Middle Fork Trail is open.
You are right that the website lists the status as closed but if you call the Lytle Creek Ranger Station 909-382-2851 they can confirm that it is open. You will need a online permit which can take 3 days to get to hike into the Cucamonga Wilderness which is pass the wilderness sign that is about 2 miles from trailhead. Note that the dirt road is very rough and has deep potholes in places which will require a 4×4 vehicle. Also there no overnight camping currently in the forest.

Thanks Shawn. I posted a trip report but is still waiting for approval.
I also posted a reply in this thread a bit ago with a link to my trip report on reddit but it appears, since I used a link, that will also need to be approved.
It’s in the socalhiking section of reddit.
For anyone going, the roughest section of the road is about 1 mile after the pavement ends. I and some others parked on the side of the road and walked the 1.75 miles to the trailhead.
