A report by Deborah Cooke, another volunteer, claimed that this is an undiscovered gem of an area, despite extensive logging. Because it’s on the edge of wilderness, and much of it is overgrown and inaccessible, it has become de facto wilderness. There are lots of bears—the first evening we walked a short distance up Road 1062, we saw one bear and heard two others. On our second trip up 1062, we saw lots of recent bear signs. It might be nice just to leave the area inaccessible to hunters. The lower elevations of Road 1062 are completely forested—no views, but pleasant. We thought perhaps Bacon Point would afford a view if we scrambled up to it, but we couldn’t even see it through the trees so we figured a bushwhack to it wouldn’t be worthwhile. The first spot with a view is at 2800 feet, about 4 /2 miles from where we started hiking. There are great views of the valley, and of Diobsub Buttes.
