I was recently informed that the roads in the Hume Lake area are open Except Buck Rock which is expected to open as soon as Fire or Recreation personnel can patrol it; which should be soon so get prepared for a trail opening / inspection very soon.
I will post info as soon as i get it.

Update
Just want to let everyone know that our patrol of the Buck Rock Trail and the Cheater Trail went extremely well.
It was a beautiful day on the mountain and the Trail was in the best condition i've seen.
As of 6/6 the trail and surrounding area were clear of trees and debris, trail markers and barriers were also ok, so lets all plan on enjoying a safe 2015 season.
Thanks Wes, Aaron and Dennis for your help.

Hey Jerome,

@GW Nugget and myself will be camping with some others at the Logger Flat campground next weekend, and might be able to join up with you for awhile. Maybe you could swing by there on your way though and get us.

Hi Donal: I should be at the Big Meadow entrance off of Generals Highway around 0930-1000 ish if you would like to meet up.

And yes as Dave mentioned, I was able to run up and inspect the trail on Monday and over all it looked great, I only saw one bypass that the Forrest Service created, I did not get to check the cheater trail section but maybe this Saturday we can look at it as well as other parts of the mountain. All the regular bypasses looked good and the backfires the Forrest service set actually helped by burning back brush along the trail. It looks like minor stuff and trash pick-up on the Buck Rock side, there maybe more elsewhere.
Bring Gloves, safety glasses and trail tools, I will bring a saw if we need it.
Hope to see everyone in the a.m.

I will see if we can get over there by then. We will kind of be at the mercy of the rest of our group, though. Not everyone is there for four-wheeling, and our kids will probably be wanting to get down to the lake.

Will you be running a CB channel?

Don is on his way up & wanted me to post for others that he will be on channel 4 if others have a radio.

Let him know I'll run channel 4.
