On 05/23/2019, joined by another jeep, 6 of us drove up Bittersprings Road to the Bitter Spring. Bittersprings Road is a 6.4-mile backcountry road that runs north from Northshore Road to Bitter Spring, then continues northeast following Echo Wash back to Northshore Road. Bittersprings Road provides access to Bitter Spring Backcountry Byway that travels west to Buffington Pockets. From the pavement, the graded road runs northeast and then north as it descends gently through rolling hills. Though our goal was to drive Bitter Spring Backcountry Byway, we never made it.
