Bear Box Restrictions

Postby maverick » Sat Jun 25, 2011 11:10 am

Just in case you did not know:

According to SEKI NPS site Woods Creek Trail & Bubbs Creek Trail "CANISTERS
REQUIRED, LOCKERS FOR PCT & JMT THRU-HIKERS".
http://www.nps.gov/seki/planyourvisit/bear_box.htm
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Forgive my ignorance, but is there so much use in those areas that the lockers fill up on a regular basis?

The section between Woods Creek Crossing to Vidette Meadow can get very busy
especially the Rae Lakes section.
Having experienced hordes of people at Rae Lakes on several occasions, my preference
is to stay at Dragon Lake or head up to Sixty Lakes Basin for some solitude.

Maverick, it must be your tracks I have seen going up to Dragon- not many others go there, that is for sure.
