Report Wed (June 9) “Lick Creek is rougher then crap, as usual. Watch out for the deep ruts on the McCall side and the culvert that is coming up through the road about Box Lake. Lots of trees still into the road but a truck can pass through just go slow. Watch for ATV/UTV’S racing through there; … as they forget Lick Creek is a multiuser road.” -KA
