Road washed out
Yesterday my family went up Deer creek to go to Kelcema lake trail. However about a mile and a half in the road started to get very rough. Good chunks of the road are torn apart. We have a 4wheel drive lifted jeep so it wasn't any issue however, a little further up the whole road has been washed out. Looks like a huge mudslide. It looks like some have tried to go up and make a path over it but there is a rock in the middle of the way. We didn't get out and walk to see if the road got any better or worse but it is definitely not usable.
Great easy hile for the kiddos, puppies, and us old timers! Beautiful and warm little lake! Saw some kids fishing! The con, the four mile trek up gravel road. Althougth well maintain, just didnt seem worth the drive for such a short hike.
This is an easy hike and great for family outings. In late August, early September, lake is surrounded by ripe wild blueberries that are wonderful tasting! Husband and I went here during our honeymoon, picked bluberries and made a pie. Sub-Alpine lake is clear and cold and makes a great place to swim on hot summer days.
