Description of Hike:
This wasn’t a hike, but it was an interesting adventure in the woods…..I had always wanted to explore the east end of the 4610 road up to where the slide destroyed the road. We were originally going to take the quads up the old Fish Creek road “trail”, but it has been washed out again, so this was the alternative I came up with. It was a fun day and was interesting to see the little used east end of the road. There are some huge trees and huge rock slides on that end and the road gets VERY narrow in places. I’m not sure a normal truck could get through all the way to the landslide.
High rocks was an amazing place and being able to go up to the old lookout location was pretty cool.
It is a VERY steep trail to the top, and on the way down I slipped and before I knew it, I was on the ground and scraped up my arm pretty good. It didn’t bleed too much, but sure hurt a lot!
A great day of exploration in the woods, and a great way to recover what could have been a wasted trip….
