June 19, 2017: Bobtail Mountain access road conditions
Gregg Creek Forest Service Road is rough with potholes and logging activity; please use caution when traveling the road. Bobtail Mountain Road is in fair condition from the turn off from the Gregg Creek Forest Service Road at 23.5 km to 5 km where the bridge has been removed. Please park appropriately at this location to allow other users access to the area. Use caution when crossing the creek.
June 14, 2017: The bridge 2 km from the parking lot is being removed
Due to rapid deterioration, the bridge 2 km from the parking lot has had to be removed. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but please note that this will add 2 km to the hike each way.
