Now that the roads are open I decided to set out and try Rho Ridge to Hawk Mountain. We set out early this morning and made our way up to the trailhead. The hike itself was remarkably clear. I believe there were only 3 minor blow downs. The trail was faint in the first quarter mile or so. The burn hit the first half mile pretty good and then the 2nd half mile was devastation but still very hike-able. The second mile was great very little sign of damage until you approach the top where the cabin sits. Checking the log book, it appears there have been a few visitors over the past couple years. Many seemed to be workers that came up to clean up. Their services were much appreciated. After the Hawk hike we drove to Olallie Lake. Olallie is still pretty much shut down. Lots of folks were there checking it out - the parking near the store was packed. In all a great day. Very nice to get back in the wilderness.
