A vast area that extends from highway 244 to about two miles into the wilderness, south of Horsetheif Lake. Mainly follows Trail #14, from the lake trailhead, through a valley that can get relatively swampy in certain spots during the spring/summer. Generally a flat approach. Considered a 'backcountry' area, you'll probably see hikers before you see another climber. Still quite undeveloped, lots of potential, hand-drill only.
Main parking is the Horsetheif Lake trailhead south of the lake. Or right off Hwy 244 in front of gate (for Hidden Acres). 0-60 min approaches.
