"There is likely an overnight wheeling and camping trip going to happen after the show. As per usual, our rec director will figure this out at the show, keep your ears peeled for details."
As my first Wreck Director decision, we're headed to north end of Chehalis Lake for some camping. Plenty of spots, the river is low and also the bridge is fixed in case you don't want to get your tires wet. I'll have my propane campfire so if someone can bring a spare propane just in case we run out that would be great. Tsunami danger: low. Mosquito danger: low. Bear danger: low.
In case you need directions, take Sts'ailes Road (Harrison West) then left at the 32km mark onto Mystery Creek and it will lead you there. BTW there are signs about a road closure, ignore them as they are past the Mystery Crk turnoff and only in effect on weekdays.
And once on the Mystery Creek FSR, I believe just stay right at any little offshoot roads and follow it till you come to the bridge at the Chehalis River. Then cross the bridge and turn left. There is a turn off into the old provincial campground (long since decommisioned) on your left again, right before the road deactivation.You know you've gone too far if you cross that road deac and start rock crawling across the landslide
There is also a turn off to the left a few 100 meters before the bridge, through what is now a clear cut to the north of Chehalis lake. From there you can also cross the river (no bridge tho).
edit: As you near Chehalis lake, you will start coming down a hill with a clearcut on your left, stay left at this intersection (you can see the road winding down through the clear cut), and views of Chehalis lake from here.
