On Saturday 11/5/2016 six Wilderness Corps Volunteers hiked 5.4 miles into Bear Trap Camp. We repaired sections of trail along the way there. There is water at upper Reyes Camp and Bear Trap Camp. The Map indicates that the fire burned up to Bear Trap Camp and that is not what we found. We so no sign of the burn at Bear Trap Camp. The carbonite Trail closure is still in place and it looks like the public is respecting the closure.
On Sunday four Wilderness Corps Volunteers cleared a section of trail from the trailhead to the Wilderness Boundary. Needless to say, everyone had a great time. The potluck dinner was amazingly delicious.
Next Steps: Take 3 day scouting trip into Haddock, and hike the section between Haddock and Bear Trap. I have reached out to USFS Volunteer Mark Subbotin about putting a trip together that will include multiple volunteer groups and the goal would be to repair the trail between Haddock and Bear Trap. We have a scouting trip going into Bear Trap Number two via Haddock on November 19 & 20, 2016.
