Parked at Hi-Drive and Old Goldcamp and took 7-Bridges to Jones Park. Cool clear Sat morning and after stepping off Gold Camp never saw anyone else till Jones Park. Took Bear Creek (FR667) upstream to Lake Moraine....mosquitoes were thick and got to about a mile short of the lake when building weather over Almagre turned me around. Never saw a soul up from Jones Park. On return, took Capt Jacks (around Buckhorn to Hi-Drive) back to the lot to make a nice loop. Few bikers and motorcyclists around Buckhorn; nothing significant. Came out a little under 13mi; 3 hrs up and 2 back. They are really digging up and laying trees into 667 in places sometimes with no substitute.
