    Southern Traverse Camp Question

    Looking to do the ST as described in MTBProject route. I've been down the FS173 road and through the field on a previous trip. Are the camp sites and parking area just inside the gate as you pass out of the field into the woods at the bottom of the climb? Is it a better recommendation to camp at Braley Pond? (camped at BP before)

    Yes, once you go through the gate (the one on the left), there is a parking area just up on the left. I guess technically you can camp anywhere in the NF (unless otherwise posted), but I would recommend Braley.

    Or, if you don't mind a little further drive, Todd Lake is a great base camp with facilities and access to other great trails like Lookout, Narrowback, etc. Todd Lake was closed for a bit while they worked on the dam, so double-check that it is open of you go that route.

    Enjoy! Don't forget to post up a ride report.
    Am I all zipped up?
