We did this hike as part of a Forest Service led hike with Steve & Lois Hirst. The hike was very informative. The group size was about 14 and we met some very intresting people, one of whom offered to shuttle our car the next day.
We found out a lot about flora and the history of the site on this trip and would recommend going on the F.S. trip.
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.
