The Little Cherry Creek backcountry is indeed true wilderness in the roadless sense; and there is some amazing geology and ecologically important riparian areas; but the truth is that the area is overrun by cattle and choked with impenetrable thickets of fire-suppressed mountain mahogany. The USFS has cavalierly abandoned any attempt to make the trailhead area appealing to even hard-core wilderness hikers. Most signs have been removed, and the trail register has been blasted with a shotgun. Some of the entries in the bullet-riddled trail register are disconcerting to say the least. I could not help but wonder if my vehicle would be vandalized while we were in the backcountry. The area has effectively been handed over to the local ranchers who treat it as an extension of their private land. The area needs controlled burns and more frequent visits by the USFS.
