This section of the Wild and Scenic river includes all of
Logging Cabin Creek. The Taylor Highway crosses over
Logging Cabin Creek about 8 miles from its source
and parallels it for much of its length. Logging Cabin
Creek is a narrow, tightly-meandering stream flowing
from the steep flanks of 5,500 foot Mount Fairplay.
The area is sparsely covered by spruce growing out of
wet tundra with thick willow and alder along the
watercourse. This area is known to support a small
population of grizzly bears.
Some hiking opportunities are possible in the area, but floating this segment below the Logging Cabin Creek bridge is concievable only in extreme high water, and then with serious hazard due to over-hanging sweepers and tight turns. (BLM - Fortymile River
