Yes, I was able to request a wilderness permit. They said that they would not approve until after the wilderness reopens. I believe the current closure expires on the 1st. It is not guaranteed, but I’m planning as if the wilderness will be open in time for my trip.
Is there a better map than the 2017 Tom Harrison? Between Manzanita Springs being fiction and the Lost Creek Trail gone, it makes me think that perhaps I should carry something more reliable.
