Slide on Cone Peak Road

Post by jack_glendening »

Gave up trying to figure out how to move this post under "Cone Peak Trail" Trail Report to here, so copying it below. Note this is between N-F Road and Vicente Flat TH.



Ken Kienow - Dec.28 :

There is a massive washout that took out the entire road roughly 2.5mi north of Nacimiento-Fergusson road. It is an impassable chasm. The road is entirely gone, the hillside to the left is nearly vertical, and to the right of the road way the washout chasm continues down into the ravine. There is also a 90% washout right before the total washout, but that one can be walked around carefully.
