Lead this short, easy trip for ABC. Great people!

We hiked in at around noon on Sat and set up camp at the Mill site. It's an excellent camping spot for a few tents with lots of trees for hangers on a rise to the left of the trail. If you cross the small drainage, you've gone too far. There was a small stream that was running just below camp, so very easy access to water. Thank you monsoon season!

After setting up camp, we set off to find the falls. We took the lower trail that follows the creek and found our way pretty easily, although the trail is obviously less used and a bit overgrown. I'm glad that some of the rock faces we scrambled over were dry. They would have been much trickier if it had rained. There was a good amount of water in Ash Creek, so we weren't surprised to see the falls in fine form. After enjoying the falls, we headed back to camp to enjoy our evening around the fire. We were even treated to a delightful belching contest :)

We took our time getting around on Sunday morning and then checked out the metal bits and pieces strewn about the Mill site before heading back up to the trailhead. Great trip!
