Nice trail close to Riggins. It starts out a bit dry and warm but once you get near the water it is a comfortable hike. We did have to deal with the poison ivy but it was easily avoided.

Had a great overnight backpacking trip on the West Fork, about 5.5-5.75 miles from the trailhead. This is a decently used and well taken care of trail with some poison ivy along the way, but you should be fine if you wear long pants. Be prepared for a climb after you cross the second bridge and take the trail up the west fork, there’s a significant elevation gain before you reach the first of the campsites. River was accessible off and on for water after the first few miles of the hike (don’t forget to filter!) Overall, beautiful views and great hike!

Great views. We picked this location because the mountain trails still had snow, but it might as well have been summer here! There is at least one fish in the river. More than that, I can't confirm.

So beautiful! I loved how one minute you’re down by the river and the next high up along the ridge.

Burgdorf is also in the Payette National Forest, near McCall, Idaho, not the Gospel Hump Wilderness.

This area is usually not accessible until the middle of June due to the annual snowpack.

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.

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.
