What a great hike. We did the shorter loop of this 14 mile round trip hike and it was beautiful. There is a longer loop to this hike which is suppose to be around 10 miles. Everything was green, it was a little overcast and a slight breeze, all which made it a perfect day for this hike. This would be a great hike in the fall when the leaves are changing. This hike starts at the end of the Los Burros campground and there were very few people on the trail.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
