This was an Idaho Trails Assocciation project in support of the Heritage Program on the Payette National Forest. The Three Blaze Trail was originally built in 1902, and this area has been burnt over several times since then. Our mission was to try to find a lost portion of that trail. We were partially successful.

The following photos are shown with their coordinates, elevation, and time of day.

Additional data will be added when I receive Art's track.
