Busiek State Forest and Wildlife Area – Changes to the White Trail

(Also referred to as Busiek State Park by some people). Hiking the Busiek Purple and White trails this week we discovered that the steep climb/descent at the southernmost point on the white trail has been replaced with a series of switchbacks. A lot easier and a fraction longer. The map below of the Busiek trails shows the new route.

Busiek State Forest and Wildlife Area - New addition to the White Trail

The pile of brush marks where the old trail made a very steep descent. It's been replaced with an easier but longer series of switchbacks. Someone has been very busy.
