The Celestine Road recently opened to traffic for the season, I was asked what is there to do up that road? Vine Creek popped into mind. This hike is rarely used to my knowledge, and the last time I went, it was overgrown with bushes.

I’m not even sure if there is a warden’s cabin at the headwaters of Vine Creek left. If you would not mind sending me (Explore Jasper) a photo if you get to the end of the trail, I really appreciated.
