The North Fork Mill Creek proposal has been part of an evolving effort by the Forest Service to thin the Dalles Watershed and surrounding forests. Bark was part of the collaborative group that submitted recommendations in March 2006, which were considered by the Forest Service in the planning of the project. This project overlaps with the proposed Gibson Prairie Off-Highway Vehicle playground area.

Take I-84 East out of Portland - Exit at exit #64 Highway 35, White Salmon and Gov 't Camp - Turn Right, twice, off the exit, following signs for Hwy. 35 South, Gov 't Camp and Mt. Hood - In 0.1 mile, go straight through the 4-way stop, still following Hwy. 35 South - Follow Hwy 35 for 10 miles (note that at 9 miles is a scenic viewpoint turnout on the right (west) side of the road, which makes a good regrouping spot) - at the top of the hill, look for Pine Mont Rd " on the left (east) - Pine Mountain Road is Forest Road 17 (1700) - The Long Prairie junctions of roads 1700, 1710, and 1711 are about 8 miles up road 17 at which point you are in the sale area."
