Awesome, thanks holeinbow! I like the fish creek trail for my first time.

If you're going in the winter, or even early Spring, the road to Fish Creek likely will still be closed for the winter. Thus the South Fork Trail is your best access with the snowboard. From what I've read over the years, it seems like most people do it in at least 2 days, camping overnight near Dry Lake. I'm sure you saw my avalanche picture from about a month ago: [Click Here] I don't have much avalanche knowledge, but I'd be extra cautious up there this year.

That is true, but actually it is just closed. This is the current condition from the USFS
"Forest Road 1N05 remains closed due to work related to the 2015 Lake Fire."
Fish Creek trailhead and trail is open, just can't drive to it.

Thanks guys! I'd give it a couple more weeks, if I can convince my wife. If not this year maybe next year. The avalanche danger has me spooked.

As a retired career firefighter, always be aware that cities, counties, and states write and heavily advertise their spending bills carefully, often showing heroic first responders for a bill loaded with pork! Read the bill before you vote!

I don't have skin in the Sloaf station but I wold prefer the folks up there have a station. But our Cali politicians seem to care more about illegals vs. citizens and property owners. Remember that next time you vote.

Dispatch going out for possible smoke near Bear Mtn/Summit, it's clouds peaking just over the ridge. Looks like smoke, but is mistaken identity.

Seems like every couple of years someone wants us to pay MORE taxes, schools, now the fire dept. Won't see me voting for this crap. OK, off my soapbox.
