I decided at the last minute to change this hike to a shuttle hike instead of out and back since I looked at tonyp's book and saw that it was 9 miles one way from the Pine TH the Strawberry TH and not round trip. That turned out to be a very good thing because we were pretty tired once we got the the Strawberry TH.

We had lunch at the Strawberry TH and made our way up FR608T (according to Jim's notes), although most maps I have show this as an unnamed trail.

The scenery at the beginning of the Oak Springs trail is very mediocre until you get away from the development. From Hardscrabble Road to 87 was a little nicer as we gained elevation and could see farther. Along FR608T there was only one section where you could get some nice views. We also heard a rattlesnake hiding under a rock along there on our way back but I never saw it.

The clouds threatened rain most of the day but none hit us until the ride home. It was a bit muggy and I was drenched by the end of the day. There were some nice breezes here and there but not enough.
