Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Road (North Shore Rd) is accessible by 2WD cars to approx. 100m from Boise Rd (gated at each end.) Room for several cars at end of N. Shore Rd, do not block N. Cove Rd (private) where it turns right. One guy in 4x4 pickup tried going past the end of the plowed section of N. Shore Rd and we had to pull him out when we finished the hike. So don’t go past where N. Cove Rd curves to the right!
