For those interested in backpacking the Pow Wow Trail near Isabella, here
is a photo essay report: http://bwac.smugmug.com/

I backpacked the 32 mile long trail in 3 days crossing and climbing over
1,817 treefalls. Proficiency with map and compass is highly recommended
and GPS with a track as a backup - unless you intend to make it an
"extended stay' trip.

Forest Service plans to clear the north segment late summer or early fall -
it has about 1,000 treefalls. Forest Service told me that they plan to do
no maintenance in 2015 and 2016.

Pow Wow offers unmatched solitude and in a way, despite of destruction by
Pagami Creek Fire, it is a beautiful trail. In contrast to complete
absence of wildlife three years ago, I saw gardner snakes, forest
mice, grouse, many birds, bumble bees and knee high jack pines. It is a
challenging trail, and best done in a group.
