This THP is about 12 miles SE of Quincy, CA and about 3 miles SE of the community of Cromberg, CA. Soper Wheeler Company is planning a ground based logging operation in mixed conifer stands at an elevation of 4,600 to 5,200 feet. The plan includes the proposed use of 18 skid trails near class I streams, 4 landings near class I streams, 11 skid trails near class II streams, 6 landings near class II streams, and the use of skid trails, roads and landings adjacent to class III streams during the winter period. Rehab logging is also planned to remove oaks and brush species and to re-plant with conifers. The Smith Creek Pack Trail traverses the THP area between Smith Lake and the town of Mohawk, and is commonly used by mountain bikers. There is 1 goshawk territory nearby on adjacent Forest Service lands. More information is available on the THP Tracking Center website.
