From the USFS website

Quote:
The road to Boundary Creek still has several feet of snow immediately off Highway 21. The bottom ramp boards at Boundary have been retracted to protect them during high water.
They updated conditions on the 3rd. Things look bad in Marsh right now too according to recent reports.

There is another thread with a link to the forest service website. Lots of woody debris in Marsh creek.

So I went past the road on Saturday. I have opened the road up at the same Banner SWE as today and once with two inches more which was easier in some ways than two years ago. But make no mistake that was 10 to 16 people working 4 to 5 hours in shifts with high clearance, chained up 4x4s to get in. And there is no guarantee that there won't be some mess to deal with on the other side of Fir Creek summit.
I always take a chain saw and have had to use it. If someone does do this please be smart about it. Don't just spin ruts in the road.....shovel it out. Please.

And to be honest, even with the warmer temps and my talent....or stupidity with a shovel, I would give it a few more days before even trying. It's getting there....

Pretty sure that was the year we waited forever for those guys to run Marsh. If I remember right. It does not look like I will be boating the MF this spring. I have a family trip planned on the Main a little later.
