very good section of the PCT, hiked in and rode horseback on it many times, watch for rattlesnakes in Deep Creek in the warmer months.

We walked across the dams and all around the river and the forks. The parking is a limited, and very little shade in the area we were exploring, a second trip is in order to really do the trail some justice. We got a late start and it heated up fast so we are making plans for a future adventure on this one, with an earlier start. We only seen a couple people and that was on the dam, one we hit the trail are there was no one. So it looks like this maybe a great getaway hike.

We went for a short hike here. We were only gone for a little more than an hour and when we got back, found the car window was broken. Luckily nothing was stolen. We waited for the sheriff who took a report. He said he would not recommend hiking here as cars are FREQUENTLY broken into! He was very helpful and said to go just a little further to where the PCT trailhead is located if we want to hike in the area.

I hike the section that starts at Hwy 173 quite often as a conditioning hike but I love it. You can park right there and pick up the trail and go N or S. Easy hike with great views. You can hike all the way to Silverwood from there as well. I couldn't find the exact map data for it so I added it, probably incorrectly. :). Ping me for questions.
