BCP458 - Strawberry Ridge
After our quick trip up Corkscrew Mountain, we turned our attention to a newer cap in the vicinity - Strawberry Ridge. The area topo map and Spin 2 report indicated a cutline immediately to the north of Strawberry Ridge. We parked at the coordinates we had for the cutline, and Daddy RedRouge led the cap team up the ridge though some pretty nasty deadfall. The trip to the top was a bit of a challenge with all the timber in the way, but we quickly found our way to the ridge.
Once on the ridge we quickly found the survey markers, Strider's Ride described the hint, and a few minutes later Daddy RedRouge came up with the find. Great stuff!
On the way down we headed north off the ridge and about 200 metres or so later picked up a game trail that led to the mysterious cutline that we had earlier missed. The walk through the forest back to the truck was pleasant, though the odd log hop was needed to pass deadfall along the cutline. As it turns out the cutline was only about 30 - 40 metres north of where we entered the forest along the Forestry Trunk. All in all a pleasant day on lesser travelled trails - the lack of trails sure increases the adventure element - thanks OFTH for another interesting cap location and to the capping team for a fine day on the trail!
