Absolutely!
Russ & I still have a couple more old camp locations to check out, plus I just need to visit the area more often as itís only about a 2 hour drive from home.

Starting from the Lewis County side, there's a great thru-hike available going via Big Otter Lake, to end either at the Ha-Da-Ron-Dah trailhead or to end in or near Old Forge. But Unfortunately, illegal ATVs have decided to decimate much of the truck trail on the west side of Big Otter.

Thanks for the video.

Yes the volume was low. Windows 10. Better in Edge than Internet Explorer.

The east side is not in great shape either. Not from ATVs to my knowledge, but just washouts and erosion in a few spots. It's pretty easy to walk around though.

Therefore, plenty of bushwhack opportunities. It is, after all, designated a Wilderness area.

Yeah - the nice thing about the TT though is it is skiable even with little snow. There are some rocks and ruts in spots, but pretty easy to miss.

If the snow is deep, there is no need to really stay on it though. It's nice to ski out on it a ways and then take off into the woods when you see an opening.

My only complaint about Haderondah is it is so close to Town of Webb snowmobile trails that you have to get WAYYY out before you can't hear them anymore.
