    Summary: Descent into a chaparral covered canyon

    This was a last minute choice as our first option was still closed due to fire recovery. Travel north through SB up to East Camino Cielo. The trailhead is at the water tank at Cold Spring Saddle. The views on the drive up the ridge are fantastic especially once you get above the cloud line. The trail descends gradually at first then more precipitously until you reach the junction at Forbush Flats. Bear straight ahead and continue down canyon. The best campground on this trail is easily the Cottom camp. The two others up-canyon from the meadow are not worth the trip in August - both are secluded, but stifling hot and riddled with flies. Cottom on the other hand sits at the edge of a small meadow that would be picturesque, but for the power lines running the length of the canyon. It was August, so everything was bone dry. There are a picnic table and a fire ring, but we couldn't even think about a fire. Kindling all around. Still, the night sky was great, morning was lovely and we got a decent start. But then it was 85 degrees in about 15 mins flat, once the sun crested the ridge. The hike out was long and hot, and we barely had enough water. There was NONE, not a trickle in the whole canyon. The trail has its charms and I think they're better enjoyed some other time than August. All that said, it's a decent hike on a whim.
