A rider on the east side of Seymour said Cooper Quinn told him he could ride there. He said MTBers built and maintain the trails there.
Numerous other riders have said there are no signs indicating that MTB is not allowed on east Seymour trails, or that it's sanctioned.
The MTB traffic on Indian River (riders returning to the Old Buck / Park gate area) is high. Walking back from BP a few days ago, I was passed by more than 20 riders in 20 minutes.
These trails are hiking trails and are getting worn much faster because of the increases in MTBers in the last couple of years, with steeper sections taking the worst hit.
Old Buck above Mt. Seymour Road has "no biking" signs. Not sure about the first switchback where there are trailheads that lead to 3Chop.
I ran up Mad Girls a couple of weeks ago prior to the park closure... it has definitely been getting bike traffic. Strava flyby for my run showed plenty of people riding it, and other east side trails, down to Indian River. It wouldn't be hard for the land manager to see that same data.
