Awesome report and pics. Agree that the lower lake is a better camping spot - was occupied when we were there. Also have to try the Peak next time.

It's a beautiful area. Nicely done. I really hope people don't start driving their vehicles to the cabin, though.

Thanks, Arnold, for the washout info. The SUV is home safe.

Thanks for the trip report! Reminded me that this area was on my 'to visit' list. Great place, scenic camping, nice scrambling and lots of blue berries (or bog berries?)!

The rainstorm of Thu Aug 26 must have added more debris to the slides, but all were still passable with a (smaller) 4WD. But I really wouldn't want to park behind the slides with any substantial rain in the forecast. I also wouldn't call the the ATV track 2WD ... although it has lots of 2WD sections it also has some critical parts only a serious (and small) 4WD would get up; steep, loose and no place to turn around.

Glad the Xterra is back home again, I was going to write down the phone number on the dash on the way back

The road to the cabin is no worse than the road to the 2WD parking, except one narrowish section (don't take there a full size truck for this reason). There is nothing abnormally steep either, a little loose in places. Yes, there is no place to turn around, or let an oncoming vehicle pass by. That's the only real concern. What you call a "serious 4x4" will make it to the cabin easily in 2WD alone, and will also make it to the switch backs. Past that it's a matter of having a short turn radius to turn those very tight switch backs - this is where a small 4x4 is actually needed.
