I am looking at doing a season opener trip of the Rea Lakes Loop on the first weekend of May.
This will be my 9th time doing the loop. I have done it the weekend after April 15th when the road was open that early.
Now, with the Sequestration going on, Roads End is only open for "day use" until 22 May. The campgrounds will also be closed.
I know you can hike any time of the year, you just need to get the permit from there once it opens.
So Roads End will be open, but does anyone know where can I park for a 3 day trip?
