The most adventurous part of our 50 mile hike that summer. We went in early July and the snow pack meant that we lost the trail. We went map and compass from Cabin Creek trail to the saddle just below Sacpegoat mountain. I would strongly recommend not going from Dabrota Creek west on this trail. The climb to the saddle is opressive. However, going from Cabin Creek to Dabrota was not a strenuous climb. One east of the saddle, the fire damage from the Canyon Creek fire in 1988 disappears and the forest is magnificent and breathtaking. The sout palisades above the head of Cabin Creek is monumental in beauty.
If you are not afraid of going map and compass, this is a worth while hike. Just go from west to east, not east to west.
