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.
