Ask Jeff Kwansey at the forest service. They were there last year at Dutra Flat. I don't know who has the lease. They are not supposed to be anywhere near Cruikshank or Buckeye Camps. Those allotments where discontinued many years ago.

Hopefully the person who brings up stock now and then does not do it this year so the rebuilt trails can harden a bit through the winter and early summer months. Cattle destroyed the trail the last time the section from Cruikshank to Buckeye was rebuilt. They came in just after the trail was fixed, the trail was soft and muddy at the time.

If they still graze cattle in the wilderness, are they out now, or when?

Thanks
