We got lucky enough to have a local stop us to ask if it was our first hike there. He said, “Rather than doing the death march up Hondo,” he recommended turning up Mountain Ave and taking the trail that is straight ahead (marked by some logs lying in the grass). We took that trail up and left and hit Crystal Falls. Then we backtracked to where the Thomas Trail forks off and took that to Catamount Falls. It was certainly strenuous but a fun journey/hike. Loved seeing Catamount Falls at the end.
Also thankful we didn’t have to do the Hondo death march...
