    Bald Mtn 1/26/08

    Lots of snow! Actually couldn't get to the start of the trail. This is the road between Dinkey Creek Rd and the start of the trail.

    'Twas a valiant effort nonetheless! Looks cool. Wish I could have made it up the mountains one more time before jumping back into school. Oh well! Hope you had a fun trip!

    Wow! Thanks Mike for reccon photos!

    Plan (Snow Run @ Shaver Lake Sat trail run Feb) is to (from hwy 168) turn into:
    - Dinkey Creek Rd and drive 9.1 miles on paved road,
    - Turn left on Rocky Creek Road 3.4 miles of paved road,
    - and then Left on Forest Road 9S43 (start of trail to Bald Mtn).

    Now looks like we're going to be snow wheeling for 9.1 miles and 3.4 miles of deep snow covered paved road before we even get to the trail head. Sounds fun!

    To confirm. Was it Forest the Road 9S43 (start of the trail) that just too much snow?

    Passable with high clearance vehicle, and winch? What do you think?

    This was all on Rocky Creek Rd. There was a 4x4 group from Sanger that blazed the trail. Took them 7 hours to go about 3 miles. They were still about half a mile from where you turn left to the enterence of the trail.

    I think a D-9 Cat would be more on order for plowing.
