    Michael Gil reviewed Kirk Creek Campground to Vicente Flat Trail

    8 days ago

    My first hike! This was a bunch of fun. The creek at the campground was dry and fires were banned. Would’ve been awesome with a nice fire. It wasn’t too chilly. The flies were plenty on the way, but breathe through your nose and you should be fine. No eaten bugs! I’d probably bring an umbrella as a trekking pole next time. There are a few spots with shade to rest on the way. The worst thing were the human feces near the rocks, super nasty and totally unnecessary. At least go off the trail. If you plan to make this trip, plan to clean up after yourself. We all know a bear didn’t leave that toilet paper. I’ll make this hike again. No question.
