We began hiking at 12pm; the trail was in good shape except for water on the trail in several places, trees that we had to crawl under, and a 4-foot-wide tributary of Slab Camp Creek to ford. All of the trees we had to crawl under were located along the Gray Wolf River Trail. We saw only 1-other hiker--a backpacker who was planning to camp by the new bridge spanning the Gray Wolf River.
My friend and I had hiked the lower Gray Wolf Trail back in November, and wanted to hike the section of trail that is no longer accessible from this trailhead. The canyon through which the Gray Wolf flows is spectacular. I very much want to return and explore the Upper Gray Wolf.
