Going to be base camped somewhere up Little River.  Figure on crossing a few more of the obscure trails in there off the list Friday and Saturday.  

Lynn Knob is one, and maybe Burner Mountain.

Yeah, we'll have to drive a truck back up 183 and drop another back on Elk Snort (or whatever it is)  :) at the gas well up from Wildell to do that one.

I've done Lynn Knob but there are a couple old trails in the area that I haven't.  There's Hinkle Run and Span Oak trails as well. The Middle Mt. area is a bit problematic because it's hard to link up trails without a bunch of road walking.

I think you mean Snorting Lick Run :D  The other end can be accessed off of Beulah Tr.

Yeah, it's Snorting Lick Run, FR35, I think. I know it well.  Bent the bumper on my truck up in there once. The name  escapes me sometimes though. :p

The next run South that has a road on it I think is Elk Lick. IIRC it's gated or has since been sown to cover.  I don't quite remember.  One of them comes up close® to the Cabins and is (was) sometimes open.

I think we may end up and do Lynn Knob, and Hinkle.  They both run into the FS road there at Little River, so we could do one Friday, and one Saturday, or both in one day, depends on how energetic we are :laugh:

Of course this all depends on tree damage.  If it's going to be a complete mess we'll find something else.

Well, we hiked Lynn Knob Friday. It was in pretty good shape.  Most of the blow downs up there were from the summer storm and already had holes cut through them.  Followed some bear tracks in the snow on it for a ways.

Saturday, we just hiked the loop road. It's abandoned after you get past the fork that goes back towards the Sinks.  It's actually very pretty once you drop down into the spruce and gain the headwaters of Little River.

The trailhead at Hinkle Run  on Little River is no longer marked.  Don't know if it's abandoned or if someone just used the signs for firewood.

All of the FS roads that I drove in there were pretty much cleared of trees.  FR44 from Glady to Little River, Little River Road, Middle mountain seemed open, but I only drove a section of that.  Elklick Run road had the gates open and was clear from 44 to Middle Mountain.

We had the place all to ourselves except for a few trucks full of bear dogs on Saturday.
