At a Glance

Current Conditions: 12/12/2017: Visitor report that Forest Road 2875 has a lot of tree damage with branches sticking into and onto the road. Also several areas of deep potholes. Slap Camp Trail was wet most of the way with several muddy places, but these were easy to step over. There are 2 trees across the trail; the first, (smaller), one is high enough to easily walk under. The second one is easy to step over. Kudos to the crew that constructed the new segment of trail, around that area that has always been super muddy. What a welcome change! There was a light dusting of snow at the trailhead and on the first portion of the trail. There were also a few patches of ice on the bridge over the river.
    Users are unable to access the lower portion of Gray Wolf Trail #834 due to a slide about 1 mile north of the Slab Camp junction with the Gray Wolf Trail.
