The generic anti-winter review does not apply here. There is no lower trailhead. Technically there is no upper trailhead. And somewhere along the upper section of FR263, the "trail" which I assume is an old logging grade veers off through the birch saplings. This is definitely a leaf off kind of trail. That said we walked FR263 to where it went from road to a two-track split, after it rounds a shelterwood cut. At the cut, we encountered a coyote who seemed suprised to see humans, and a solitary, assuming male and one year old, black bear, who turned tail and plunged into the saplings and rhubus of the cut. Speaking of rhubus, we gorged on blackberries for pretty much the entire 4 mile out and back. I'll post a new review if we revisit Dewdrop after leaf off and hike the actual "trail". On the way back to Kane, we think we saw the RoW on a shelf above Longhouse, so it may well still exist.
