Thought I'd start this thread to get word out about status of off road routes. As of April 30/06, east side Harrison Lake forest service road is clear [for bikes anyways] all the way to the Silver River campground. Our attempt to get through to North Bend [Boston Bar] was foiled by a wall of snow about 2 kilometers from the bridge crossing at Silver Creek, along the start of Kookipi Creek FSR. We back tracked to try the northern longer route past Silver River campground and made it in about 6 kilometers, crossing many small de-commision dig-outs till we came across a road slide/snow combination that our big duelly's couldn't climb. A trials bike would have been the trick in there, but not a 550ib GS. Ciao, Steve G.
