Tried to get up east side of the Fraser, above Hope. No way by road.
Maps show plenty of logging roads and side trails. No luck 😭
My helicopter was booked for the afternoon...😆

Maybe you should try getting hold of one of the logging companies to see how they get into that area for cutting.

Good Luck !!

I was talking to other miners, I guess the bridges were beyond repair. The price of logs now it's not worth logging these second growth toothpicks. They say if things stay the same almost all logging roads will be deactivated...sad for us miners 😢Mining claims will be worth nothing if you can't get to them.

Hi.Some of those roads have not been used in 50-60 years.They are only kept up if there is more logging to be done.Some times a company will keep a main line open.It is more cost effective to maintain than rebuild if they have a forseeable future.But nobody provides roads for mining except the minor himself.Luck,Mcbain.
I started out with nothing Istill have most of it.

Where you trying to get to ?  You can PM me if you want.  We explored as much of that area as my Jeep my legs can take us.

Yes,  quite a few.    You can drive to the big valley just north of Squeah 6.  Not sure that helps you.
From there you have to go East and you get pretty sketchy and miles from the Fraser.

We have a claim on the East side of Emory that requires a boat..lol..

Ya  thanks ,I went up again and found a way around  the dug out road. It's sure a tough going for a  maserati. 😢 You can probably get a boat from the locals. I talked to the guy incharge of the campground there he seems very accommodating
