East Fork Creek

Posted on Saturday, December 19th, 2009 by »

We’ll follow the perimeter of the proposed Scotchman Peaks Wilderness, along the Lightning creek road. Repairs to the road since the floods of 2006 have been complete, but the many changes due to the floods are still evident and will be observed. Tall Cedars, some toppled, and tossed boulders line the streams. Depending on how far we can drive we may cross the East Fork Creek and then follow its flood plain past the new trail head, exploring the jumble of trees and boulders, looking at how floods altered native plant habitats and animal browse patterns. The route will be out and back, total distance dependent upon how far we go before turning around.
