Re: Slickrock Creek-getting there!
If you decide to go the Big Fat Gap route I would make sure I didn't leave anything of value in my vehicle. Based on my own experience and reports I have heard from others, vandalism is pretty bad in that area unless the forest service has started patroling the parking area. It's been 8 years since I have used that parking area but after getting my truck broken into and several items stolen I made up my mind never to go in that way again. Things may have changed I don't know just wanted to give ya, a heads up.
Expecting a carjacker or rapist or drug pusher to care that his possession or use of a gun is unlawful is like expecting a terrorist to care that his car bomb is taking up two parking spaces
