Detail Map of waypoint RR02
in Roaring River:
(scroll down for directions, waypoints, and area map)
- RR02 is a standard box, at about 7400 feet,
in the GPS route ROARING RIVER.
- Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, Aug 2003:
One box on the west side of the Roaring River bridge and the south side of the
trail (behind a bearbox signpost) between the ranger station and the bridge
across Roaring River. There is a backpacker camping area across from the bear box
on the north side of the trail, and a hidden latrine west of (and uphill from)
the camping area. This is not a quiet place to camp, and horses may cover you
with dust if you camp close to the trail. A water spigot near the ranger station
is marked 'not potable'. There is a message board (with paper and pen) on the
ranger station door.
