In case persons here are useing Hwy 173 route via Bradford ridge route to the deep creek area. You may notice Contractors picking up sticks and wood along the road. This is to reduce the fire hazards in the forest area.

This web site explains their plans : http://alpenhornnews.com/winter-burns-p4534-1.htm

Yesterday while soaking in the hot springs I met a pretty woman who had hiked in using her GPS and an old hot springs book and got lost. So, I explained to her how to find the Bradford ridge path and where she erred. When her old book was written the road beyond the shooting range was dirt. Now it is paved. She thought she had to go past where the gate was to get to D.C.H.S. Because that is where the dirt road is and the book said so. It was her first time to the springs and she just moved to the area and I could tell she would be back often using that route. It had taken her 3-4 hours to climb through Kinley creek to get to the hot springs. Incredible !
So, be careful out there, Glad to help.
