“A tough, backcountry bushwhack on a faint to non-existent trail.
— mark laughlin
The surrounding terrain makes this a beautiful hike, but the sometimes non-existent trail can be quite challenging. The top of Trail #73 connects to Trail #69 not far from FSR #430. From there, the faint trail is littered with fallen trees and challenging sections of rocky footing. Hikers would be wise to follow the Trail #73 Alternate
to cut out a boggy middle section of this trail.
Expect navigating to be difficult on this barely traveled trail. Hikers may want to hike up the from the bottom of the trail to way-find and familiarize themselves with the forest before tackling this as a descent.
