Geez, that's kinda helpful information to get out, don't you think?SuperstitionGuy wrote:Yes the original campsite information was incorrect. His actual campsite was in a little green valley maybe a hundred yards or more south of Peters trail. For the most part the search has been north of his campsite up the mountains to the north. Old mining prospects being up there.....
Not if it's buried in a shallow grave.joe bartels wrote:It would seem after several months if there was a body out there that a hiker would have at least caught a scent. ?
Going to try to make it up there on Sat. Anybody know if Fish Creek has Water? What about the road, can we make it in a 2 wheel drive truck? Most of the time I don't need 4 wheel drive. Anybody else want to go?SuperstitionGuy wrote:Because of the high water in Fish Creek which would have made it to dangerous to search upstream to Fish Creek Cave,
I will look for a route on HAZ, might be able to make one on my computer. SSAR maps show a unnamed trail that cuts over to Lost Duchman Canyon, then heads north passing the opening for Fish Creek Canyon. I can trace that onto one of my maps and get a GPS route.SuperstitionGuy wrote:The old trail from the Tortilla Ranch is very overgrown and if you can't find the cairns it might be easier to just off trail it to the junction of Fish Creek and Lost Dutch Canyon. This is what Jesse probably did anyway if he did try to examine Fish Creek Cave. I haven't checked but there may be a GPS route from the Tortilla Ranch to the junction of Fish Creek and Lost Dutch Canyon on this website.
Take your camera along as it should be very pretty out there by now with the stream flowing and the flowers beginning to come into bloom. Be sure to use your GPS to locate the cave as it is very easy to pass by it because of the trees and other vegatation that exists between the streambed and the cave.
Yea, might want to either walk it or bring the utv. Thanx for the video Stiller. Joe did say I could get to Fish Creek in 2 wheel.Stiller wrote:You will need 4WD to get up that road.
I was looking at that route on my map and remember that area from the 88. Someother time would be nice, but thinking about just hiking in. I was able to get a route from my map program. Shows that the cave is only about 2 miles from trail head. Is that correct?SuperstitionGuy wrote:Joe meant that you can get to the junction of 88 and the old road in to the Tortilla Ranch site with your truck. And also to where Fish Creek flows under highway 88. Do not attempt to hike all the way up Fish Creek from the bridge as it is to far and difficult for a one day trip.
