5 miles of hiking • 500' elevation gain •
Well I heard the Larch area was open so I headed up to one of my favorite areas to wander. Had been avoiding this for a few years because of a massive clearcut around 2015 at the Palmer mill townsite. The young trees are now tall enough to obscure the carnage. Still some big trees and cool alder hallways around. The trails have been lightly trod in recent times.
