I hiked up Anthony creek trail and Russel Field trail and somewhat overestimated the challenge of getting to the back country site. Overall it should take roughly 2 hours from the starting location, but it is an up hill climb the entire way - so pack lightly. The campsite itself is very minimal, offering bear cables and a basic pit to start a fire. That being said the winding creek and untouched forest offering a diversity of flora and fauna made the overnight trip worth it.
