There is a down tree about one mile before the Bare Mountain trailhead on Road 5700-1. I was scrambling in the area and had to park my car before the tree. So be prepared to add extra two miles to your trek if you’re looking to head over that way in the near future.
Take note that the major creek crossing won’t be a problem going up in the morning as the water level is low. But in the afternoon/evening the water will be much higher and the rocks used to cross will be submerged in the water.
It’s been nearly two years since I last hiked the Bare Mountain trail. It was a pleasant surprise to see the heavy brush has since been cleared and the trail was actually visible this time! Thanks to all the volunteers!
Just as expected, the views from summit were just amazing. I never get tired of looking at all the North/Middle Fork peaks.
