If I am understanding what I have heard the trail will not be open untell June of 2010. Mind you this is not the official word and is only the local buzz. I am currently in the process of finding out the official ruling.
Thats what I heard from Sam Bissel (FS) as well. They (FS) want the trail to "settle" over the winter.
