2Not if it is a National Forest trailhead, unless the lot is gated or posted. The Forest Service and BLM are not enforcing recreation or other general closures, outside of developed and staffed facilities.
FWIW, I have this info from several sources, including furloughed NPS staff that are spending their time off hiking in the national forest.
