The following video documents the alternate I took to still visit this area, despite the fire closure. This hike turned out to be the adventure I was looking for, and in no way was I bummed to have detoured.
As with the Trinity Alps High Route proper, my alternate shared a few miles with The Siskiyou Peaks Trail.

And stay tuned for sweet redemption.
