Hike Summary: I was out here in December 04 with friends Jody and Chuck. Weather was great, the river was beautiful and fine food and fellowship around the campfire. Camping is permitted only in designated camp zones. Potable water is available at trailheads. Most surface water sources were a bit too green and scummy to filter but I suppose we would have if we had to!
