Yes. You used to be only half way up the road at that trailhead.

I couldn't make the meetings but I submitted my comments earlier.

My feeling is that paving the last 14 mile section is long overdue.  When they moved the highway out of Darrington to the west side of the river as far as the White Chuck and paved it, the project was expected to continue shortly after but the budget ran dry.  It eliminated the worst section of road though between the Sauk Prairie Road and the White Chuck, which was pothole heaven.  I might see some issues on the stretch between Elliot Creek and Barlow Pass but not north of there.  There's also not as much snow at that elevation (Barlow Pass the highest at 2400') that would make it difficult to plow as an emergency route.  At one time they used to plow the south side from Verlot to Barlow Pass regularly.

It finally came to me, I recall several years ago looking at an old map and seeing Sloan Campground, which is where I assume FS road #49 previously ended, and was probably the beginning of the old trail to Sloan Meadows and Peak. Thanks Kim, Ann, and Shroder.

It will make it easier for people to haul their old trailers, motorhomes, and garbage up there to dump it
