||Klem-Mack, Mack-Anna, Anna, S. Straightback, Straightback Mtn, Blueberry Pasture, Old Stage, Red (Old Stage-Sunset), Yellow (Shannon)|
|Date of Hike:
||Sunday, May 2, 2021|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||The crossing on the Red, very near the Blue intersection remains tricky. One option has a rope to hold onto, except key rocks were submerged; the other option is to walk across via a large fallen tree. We took the tree option, and it worked for all.
Old Stage Road between Alton Mtn & the Red trail remains submerged near the short bridge, due to beaver work.
Other water crossings were as expected for this time of year. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Nothing anywhere required a reroute.
Mack-Anna has a couple of newly fallen trees since the last time I walked it.
Perhaps there was a step-over om the Klem-Mack.
Blueberry has a couple that merit clearing too.
The Red Old Stage to Sunset has a step-over or two also. |
||Friday night's cold windy driving rain kept the bugs away deep into Saturday. Then, a few ticks plus swarming, non-biting black flies at lower elevations. |
|Lost and Found:
||Everyone we came across was very friendly! |
