First 1/4 mile of this trail was very difficult to follow and I almost gave up twice. Lots of deadfall & game trails had me going in circles for awhile but I eventuality found the trail along the pipeline. The last 1/2 mile to the spring was very nice with great views of the valley below,a berry patch & lots of green along the trail. The spring itself has been tapped with pipes going in just about every direction. Took the trail back a little ways before finding a spur trail down to the Twilight campground road and walked it back to the trailhead completing a loop.
On the way back down the mountain, there were hundreds of huge caterpillars crossing the road. I have never seen anything like it before and almost could not believe my eyes! Stopped at Roper Lake on the way home to watch the sunset.
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.
