Itinerary description

From start of Copper River FSR to Telkwa Firehall. Full trip. I have listed a couple of offload points as waypoints but there are more further up Copper River FSR. Parking can also be had at or about 33.5 (Clore), 44km, 48km and 52km. The spot at 44 can unload 10-15 trailers if done right. Please dont unload in logging truck pullouts. There is active logging Monday to Friday.
Would not recommend any pickup trucks through as there are some narrow sections between the lakes that are bordered with boulders and nowhere to turn around.
