I'm most concerned about getting my car to and from the parking area safely, so plowed roads should be a necessity in my mind. Aren't there any other appropriate sites in that general area? State parks, campgrounds? I'd like some nice hiking, but surely there are other places in the general area that would work? Wish I could suggest some, but don't know the area at all.
"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver
