A Couple’s Labor Of Love Keeps Wilderness Trails Open For Others

The Kalmiopsis Wilderness has crystal clear rivers, native salmon and steelhead and the rarest of plants. After wildland fires destroyed the trails of the Kalmiopsis, people said they'd never be rebuilt. One young couple refused to accept that answer.

Nice. I remember the Biscuit fire. My family were on a road trip that included a leg up the coast through Redwoods and into Oregon and there were some detours due to the fire.

What a lovely place. Of course now I want to go to see it, and the article deals with the anxiety folks have over increasing awareness of the wilderness and the impact greater numbers of hikers would have.

Thanks for this post. I made it up into the KW for the first time just last month (hiked to Vulcan Lakes). It's intense.
