Anybody ridden 90 above Curly Creek towards 23?

Curious if the snow is gone and how bad the road is.

Just checked the Gifford Pinchot NF website, and it's not looking good.

FS-90

Quote:
Open for the season from the West. Not recommended for trailers until slump in road has been repaired about 1 mile before Lower Falls. Rd. 90 is not accessible yet from Rd. 23 due to snow.
Sounds like snow is still an issue.

FS-23

Quote:
4/14/2016: Road is washed out at MP 12, MP 18 and MP 23.4 The road will be closed indefinitely. Note: Some access routes to this site are unusable due to recent flood damage.View a map of inaccessible roads on the Cowlitz Valley Ranger District to determine alternative access routes.
The above damage appears to be in the section between the FS-90 Rd Jct, and Randle, so hopefully isn't an issue once the snow clears.

Thanks for the Recon Richard. How far do you think you were from the FS-23 intersection?

Looking at my garmin map, A mile.
It wasn't recon, I was looking at camp grounds out that way just in case I do actually motorcycle tent camp like I want to.

Thanks. That area is definitely in the higher elevations of that route, so I'm not surprised that there is still snow in the area. I'm just hoping that there isn't any new damage waiting to be discovered once the snow melts.
