Hiked from the gate on FR487 up to Parker Creek Trail and then down with John and pottery magician Preston. Tagged in an off trail jaunt up to some sweet lookout points.
Hiked through twelve foot snow on the road up. It was more realistically in the foot and half range but the effort was definitely in line with carrying a horse on your back
Parker Creek is a nice heavily forested ravine. Would be a good combo with Abbey's Way.
Mileage and time are estimates.
