Breckenridge Road is a single lane road
that hugs the mountain for 10 miles of
steep upgrades. The road is littered with
landslides and boulders... extreme weather
conditions... you don't see too many people.

Snow and freezing temperatures during winter
season. Check the weather forecast and bring

MORE DIRECTIONS and INFORMATION
At the junction of Cal-Bodfish and Cal Creek Road, you

directions offer great scenic opportunities.
OTHER:

Bear Footprints
Bear Tracks

We had planned to camp near O'Brien Springs and had found a good place to park on Road 28S19. Going for a walk we noticed these fresh bear tracks... and they were extra large. We did our photos, but it was decided to move a couple miles up the mountain to Breckenridge Campground.

Buried Garbage
Buried garbage at campsite #5

Burying your trash sounds reasonable,
but the animals will dig it up. Garbage
that was buried at site#5. Maybe it was
with good intentions combined with stupidity...
but they buried it right in the middle of a
leveled tent pad.

March 2006 produced snow and blizzard conditions. Had food and water for several days and the worst case scenario would be to make a sled and ski down the mountain.
