AllTrails must have Horton Springs and Horton Creek mixed up. Yesterday, I did Horton Springs with a couple of buddies. I was beautiful, but AllTrails says that it’s a 2,400 foot elevation gain, it wasn’t. It was about 1,000 feet, which left me wondering if we had reached the real Springs or if we had to keep going.... but that was it... so a nice, gradual elevation hike...... next time, we’ll do Horton Creek which AllTrails shows at 1100 feet.... my guess is that it will be the challenging 2400 foot one. Based on AllTrails, you may prepare for a lighter hike only to be challenged by a more demanding effort.
