Cowiche mill road conditions
« on: March 20, 2017, 07:17:48 PM »
Can anyone over there tell me how the road up nasty creek is right now? I'm thinking about trying to get to our cabin up there on the 31st. Thanks

Nasty last time I was up that way.

friend of mine went up the mill road last weekend and had a ton of water over the road.  He turned around and didn't attempt to go through.  He said it was bad. 
Tule, the other white meat.

Which road are you asking about? Your title says mill road but then you start out saying nasty creek? Pretty sure nasty creek is still snowed in and I think they closed the mill road about a week ago due to water over road way

Actually that would take you over to the south fork of the cowiche. Which in a Roundabout way can get you to the mill road but regardless I'd bet nasty creek is still-impassable do to snow. If you take a look and find that the road is open please post your findings

I have to agree that is an interesting way to get back to Cowiche Mill Rd. Agree with other comments. Water over the road in many places. It's passable but not recommended. It's not that far past the cattle guard that it gets bad.
