Serene Lake is a sweet gem of a hike. It’s a great option if you’re looking for a trail you could easily day hike or backpack and camp.

Another great job Ed. This is a great area to ride and you never run out of trails.

The trail is an old logging road and is wide enough. It is also very rough and washed out.

I just returned from camping across the road from the Corduroy Campground which was closed.

While we were there, we watched a logging operation remove beetle killed trees from Corduroy and three other area campgrounds.

The campgrounds are open again in case anyone is into winter camping. The temperatures were getting into single digits at night before I left.

The roads/trails were clear and the Carey Creek Trail is still as rough and rocky as ever.

The highway road sign at the Josephine Lake Road is gone, but the sign for FR 316 on the dirt road is still there.

I added photos of the Chinook Salmon Counting Station on Lake Creek and of the headwaters of the Secesh River to the POIs.

Most of the campgrounds in the area have "Closed" signs. There are a lot of beetle killed trees in the campgrounds and the USFS is concerned some might fall. Camping is still allowed "AT Your Own Risk".

The only one completely closed is the one in POI #2. Potable water is still available here.
