Description

This section of trail is not marked on modern maps.

Certain older blogs detail this route as being viable and more back country friendly than taking the marked Mt Dickens Descent down to the Wigwam Inn.

This route would allow us to link up to the Indian Arm FSR without needing to worry about crossing the river without a bridge.
