Great report!! Great Pics!!
My comments have been made to the FS. The biggest thing that bothers me is the way they intend to close the trail that goes thru the meadow. I can understand the meadow thing but there is a lot of good trail running beyond where they intend to close and reroute where the intersection is. I do not know if those trails were inventoried as part of the Travel Management Plan (guess I have some research to do). You can continue thru there and come out at about Cloversprings (if you know how). I first was on those trails about 1991 and was shown them by someone who had bee up thereabouts since the early '70's.
Sometimes when I give my 2cents, I expect change!
