Did the Meadow Creek to Gum Springs loop ("counter-clockwise") but didn't go up the spur to the fire tower, which made the loop 5 miles on the dot. Trailhead is right across from the Houston Valley Campground.

Lots of blowdown on the first mile right now. The first half of the loop is pretty backcountry and strenuous and the second half is pretty open and easy.
