A friend of mine drove it yesterday to scout out for an overnight trip. He reports that he made it all the way to the th in 2wd (though he had 4wd). High clearance recommended.

Re: Tucson hiker attacked by bees on Pontatoc Ridge Trail

@DixieFlyer "He recommends anyone hitting the trails to have a bee net handy to protect your face and head." I question how realistic a protection this is. If you didn't have it on before the attack started, I have some doubts about whether you would have the time/presence of mind to pull...

Re: Glacier NP Hikes

Bumping this post. Heading to Glacier this summer. Any additional recommendations from HAZ nation? In addition to the overall highly recommended hikes, I'm particularly interested in those that don't require access from Going-to-the-Sun Road, which now requires an extra permit to travel on. I have a...

Re: Cabin Loop Suggestions

@ALMAL Looks like its about a 5 mi. round trip to CC Cragin from Pinchot as the crow flies. Is there an established trail? I don't see any posted routes, and the photo is not geocoded, so it's hard to pin down where it connects with the reservoir. Did you just hike down one of the 4x4 tracks that h...

Re: Cabin Loop Suggestions

Thanks for all the feedback/suggestions. One other question: I'm thinking we will do the eastern side of the loop for sure. The question is whether to incorporate Houston Brothers, or just stick to the outer loop and incorporate Fred Haught and General Crook. If you had to choose on and bypass the o...

Cabin Loop Suggestions

Looking for suggestions on route and best camping spots for an overnight backpacking trip along the cabin loop. Prefer a camping spot with hammock options, though I assume that wouldn't be a problem most places. Would like to cover the loop over the course of two days. Thanks in advance!

Re: Nankoweap Drive, Starting Point, Etc.

@nonot Thanks. Looking hard at Mystic Falls. Looks like a solid bushwhack on the final approach, but not too bad in the creekbed before that, and manageable AEG. Also, considering Nankoweap Butte per @friendofThundergod 's suggestion, or along the Colorado to Kwagunt Canyon/Creek. Making it down an...

Nankoweap Drive, Starting Point, Etc.

Looking for intel on the status of the road to the "north" TH to Nankoweap, off 89A by Vermillion Cliffs. The maps show it a "Buffalo Ranch" Road, then 8910. Is it a high clearance/4WD situation? Also, while I'm at it, I get the sense that this is generally the preferred starting...

Re: Silver Bridge closure

"There is no estimated time of repair." Given lack of budget and resources, I fear this could be a very long time. Granted, the silver bridge is a much bigger priority, but If the bridge at Ribbon Falls is any indicator, we should get used to black bridge travel ....
