28. I first went to Twin Lakes in 1967 on a Honda trail bike.

The "logging roads" were built in the early 1970s for Twin Lakes and Slate-Robbins timber sales (and several subsequent large timber sales).

In 1967 the way to Twin Lakes was to go up Cedar Camp Road and about a mile past Dyer Place there is a 1930s era jeep road that goes to Cedar Springs, wraps around the head waters of Slate Creek, accesses several mines (chrome), and accesses Twin Lakes.

There is a blocked old truck road between the upper and lower Twin Lake that accesses a small clear cut (now a 40 plus year old plantation). Spring 1973 I was reviewing Twin Lakes timber sale units logged in 1972. I flagged where fire line would be built and sketched maps of where hardwoods needed to be fell in the clear cut, and snags needed to be fell outside the unit boundaries in preparation for broadcast burning. At the bottom of that specific clear cut I found an old fashioned logger's hard hat that I ended up using for 30 years, now hanging on a nail here in my office.

There are Brewer Spruce on Slate Creek Butte.
