We stayed off the main road as much as possible from Headquarters to Los Cruzeros. The hike down is easy and the hardest part was running into little snakes crossing shin high water in through the Narrows. We stopped for lunch at China Hole and we had the place to ourselves. We stayed for only 1 night, since it was our first time backpacking, and left around 11:30AM. We took poverty flats back to Headquarters and it was pretty tough with 25lbs on your back. From the campsite to Poverty flat is a steep half mile and we took about 7-10 breaks on the way up(roughly every 250ft). Dont forget to filter water before you head home. We had so much fun and we can't wait to backpack more!
