The HRT from Chester Lake to Sawmill. Mostly double track old road. Signage not complete yet. Watch for the T-intersection, at about 1.4 km from Chester Lake parking, marked by a very small "Winter Trails" map on the north side of the trail. You want to turn south at this point.

Bikepacked the entire HRT from Goat to Boulton. Absolutely fantastic trail conditions. Plenty of water available along the trails.

Trail is open. Pretty much all double track for his section of the HR. Saw a black bear on the trail (ran off in to the woods when we yelled at it).

 July 26, 2017. Chester parking lot access closed due to grizzlies in the area. The trail is still open though.
