At Tesnatee Gap there is a trail to the south, a very decrepit sign may still be visable, for the LOGAN TURNPIKE TRAIL.   This is a two mile steep downhill to a parking area, showing the hardships of mtn travel in olden days.<br />Map also shows a way to bushwack north through forest to eventually hook up with remains of road at USFS 131.
