Planing a road trip for the first week of Aug. Was looking for any info on this area. Trying to find a route from Big Bar Lake towards Gold Bridge then over the Hurley Pass. Anyone traveled in that backcountry recently? Just trying to nail down a route. The plan so far is to leave Fri morning july 30, for the Skagit Vally/Ross Lake for a couple days of fishing, then up the Fraser Canyon to Blue Earth Lake for a night, then up to Clinton,and stay at Big Bar Lake. From there I would like to cross the Fraser via Big Bar Ferry, and head south towards Gold Bridge, over the Hurley Pass. Finish the trip with a dip in the hot springs at Pebble Creek just North of Meager Creek hot springs, then down the Sea/Sky home.Any info on the area between Big Bar and Gold Bridge would help, all new teritory for me. Should be a good adventure.
