Write Up:
With record dry weather this summer, the Middle Fork and Nyak Creek were easy fords. We followed the river, then bushwhacked to the abandoned Ranger Station. From there the trail to the summit of Loneman was a long gradual trip that wound around the mountain. This is a trail built for horses. This area burned a while back, so the new larch growth is only about 10 feet tall. It was close to gold, with a slight greenish hue. The way back was quick even though we had to walk around a stopped train to get back to the cars.
