    The latest stuff I know about that section is the logging issue. I've not seen the temporary reroute, but as I understand it you will be hiking south and come to a road and gate at about 100.7 mile...

    Typically about 1 to 1.5 feet deep. I do believe an 11 year old would be fine. The first week of October at low elevation you will likely be in the 40's and up high you could see low 30s.

    I love that campsite on Loss Creek. I often think I'll use that one on Towee Creek as it is a short jaunt in from the parking area and would be a great campsite while traveling in a pinch, but I've...

    I've always hear the rattler called the gentlemen of snakes because he at least lets you know he is there so you can stay away. Last month I saw this big sucker going south from Toonawee Mountain.

    I hike around here often that time of year and there is nothing different about the bear danger then from what there is right now. I wouldn't carry bear spray.
