Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Magalloway Rd. is shared/plowed snowmo corridor and logging road. The lane of the road is for snowmo and the north is for logging. When I looked at it on Friday, I wondered if it may be viable to drive in a small car as it was well plowed. However, a sign did say 'closed to unauthorized vehicles.' When I returned on Sunday, any temptation to drive was eliminated by the fact that there was about 7in. new snow on the road. It got rougher further on and I doubt many vehicles would have made it. There was also a Boarder Patrol agent parked at the start and questioning some people, to include me as I walked. Long story short, I parked in the lot across the street on Rt. 3 and walked in.

Comments
Comments: I walked Magalloway road for about four miles and turned right onto Corridor 20 west. I followed the corridor for a couple miles and turned onto an unknown road headed towards West Magalloway. The road had been ridden, though not in the last couple days. I followed this until it turned south and I realized it was not the road I wanted. I began to bushwhack north to catch other roads, but they did not turn up where expected. I turned east and headed right at the west peak, finding very good woods to the recognized highpoint. I bushwhacked to the Col in good woods and then held that contour heading east until I hit the trail. Snow was powdery and I was sinking a foot to knee depth, which made for fairly tough breaking on my own. Thankfully, the trail to Magalloway had been ridden, though not that day. From the summit, I followed my tracks out.
