|Brand new clear cut.|
The Narrowback loop started on the Tillman Trail, which summited Narrowback Mountain. The Tillman Trail heads east from the Tillman Road (FS 101), climbing through a section of reputed old growth forest (see link), and passing by a fresh clear cut. The Tillman Trail was the southern boundary for the clear cut, though who knows where it will be if I return, as the clear cutting does not appear to be over.
