North Lake Owen Drive to Old Highway 63 Trailhead
Due to a high wind event on Jul. 1, trail is mostly OBLITERATED! This is noted at North Lake Owen Drive, but not at Old Highway 63. So if heading south (or easterly), the sign recommends an alternative route. If heading north (or westerly) same sign, but also says TRAIL OBLITERATED ….
Had to bushwack my way out of there after 2 miles in from the north. The trail is GONE! DO NOT ATTEMPT!!
From what I understand the forest service will clear that area due to old-growth trees that they want. So volunteer clearing is non-existent.
Use FR 213 or FR 217 to get around this hazardous area
