Ascent Trip Report

I managed a day ascent (4:50 up, and 5 hrs down-) via the Joseph Creek Trail and the northwest ridge route. The trail is still in good shape, although the final few kilometers of road are becoming a good B.C. bush bath. That said, I noticed new flagging for a planned cutblock just east of the protected area boundary, as well as a road traverse. This will likely result in road improvement and changes to the first kilometer of trail.
