I was at Horseyard Flat on Sunday - I didn't check Billy Goat Bluff
Track - but the other gates that I saw are currently shut. As far as I know all the Alpine gates are closed at the moment. It has been pretty wet up there over the last week, Wellington/Macalister flowing well, Moroka about double normal flow, I don't think Parks would open the gates early.
All gates (depending on track conditions) should be opened about the Thursday before the Melbourne
Cup Weekend - end of October/start November.
There is another way from the Pinnacles
area to Dargo
which avoids gates (none on tracks) but I'm not sure of the track conditions.
Hope it helps,

I can't remember if Billy Goats gets locked or not.
