Very nice trail/hike. Much thanks to those who trimmed the catclaw etc.along the trail. Made the hike much more pleasant no doubt. Disappointing to see graffiti in the ruins and bits of litter along the way. The infamous horse remains overwhelmingly odorous. The FS roads into the trailhead have been graded and are in decent shape. A bit too long of a drive for a day hike, but overall a great experience.
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.
