Jackie and Don has left a new comment on your post "Directions to Rock Pit":
My friend and I follow the blog and live in Reedsport so we thought a trip up to Canary was in order. We followed the directions of Ted and turned off on Grant Creek. He warned of a rough road and he wasn't kidding.
We had the Ford truck with us so we went to the end of Grant Creek passing the old campground called Hone Camp on the way. After 1/1/2 hours of up and down back and forth we reached the old rock pit.
There is a old rusted heavy steel gate across the road so you have to walk into the old pit site. I can see why Bigfoot would want to be there. The pit is in a valley with 3 sides nearly vertical up and down covered with timber. On the east side a creek runs down off the mountain into a man made lake or pool.
The timber is virtually untouched back there covered in moss and definitely old growth. We found no tracks around the soft earth near the lake but did see where branches of trees had been broken .
We kept in mind the encounter the commenter made about coming face to face with the Bigfoot so we didn't wander into the forest. The pit itself is covered with small trees and vegetation now but you can plainly see it was a rock pit years ago.
On our way back we stopped at Hone Camp and I'll tell you I wouldn't camp there. It was built by the CCC back in WW2 for a logging camp according to our information.
The trip cost us $80 in gas but was well worth it as we seen wild wild beautiful country.
Thank you for the great comment. I'm sorry you didn't at least see some tracks. ... LNP
