Major damage at Whitewater and Mission Creeks

April 3rd, 2019
By: Paul Alexander & Olivia Nolan from Ireland

We are hiking the PCT and are at mile 250 having come through Whitewater and Mission Creek. The trail through Mission creek is missing in parts. There are huge boulders to cross on the wide flood-damaged river beds and many large pines down crossing the paths heading up out of Mission Creek to the Big Bear mountains. It’s challenging…. Big Bear is snow covered and without ice axe and spikes ( minimum ) is again very treacherous!
