Hey everyone,

I did the West Branch loop in the Rawah's a couple years ago and loved it and was looking at doing a solo trip there at the end of August. I know there was a fire in the area last year so was wondering if anyone had any information on how or if that loop trail was hit? It looks like there might be some burn on the drive in on 14 but just want to check on how the area is doing.

Also open to other nearby areas as I'll be driving in from the Chicago suburbs.

Thanks!

Caltopo app has a overlay for fire history that shows fire perimeters.... Good resource
