Anne Creek Trail 426

Filed under: Anne Creek trail 426 — Tags: , , — montucky @ 10:16 pm

On Monday I did a little exploring on what was a very old trail that had once been discontinued. It is near the area of a rather large wildfire last summer and the fire crews apparently sawed it out to use to access the fire. It is in a very remote and rugged area. Now it has been added back on the USFS trail inventory and I know it will take me to a peak that I have wanted to visit for years. I made it over the first two stream crossings on foot bridges which were put in place by the fire crews, but I turned back (for now) at the third because it had to be forded and I was not prepared for that. I am posting a bunch of photos for those interested in seeing a bit of very wild, very rugged and beautiful forest back country. Later in the summer I will make the entire trip from the west fork of Thompson River road to Sundance Ridge.

The photos are posted in a ragged fashion, grouped by the first stream crossing, a couple of the trail, the second stream crossing, a photo of the third crossing, and a big series of scenes from along the trail.
