Owl Creek Pass from the Silverjack Side—Still Closed

This is the view of Owl Creek Pass Road from the Silverjack side

This is the view of Owl Creek Pass Road from the Silverjack side. There's still some melting yet to happen!


By stroke of coincidence, I was on the Silverjack side of Owl Creek Pass today. We were visiting the Woodrum’s camp on Middle Fork. I took a quick side trip on the trusty Yamaha XT-250 up as far as I could go up the road to Owl Creek Pass. I encountered the snow shown above. The GPS track below shows my attempt on Wednesday and my attempt today, with about 2.4 miles of road separating the two sides.
Owl Creek Pass: still a gap that's snowed in.
