My first foray on this trail. The directions provided on this site took me right to the recently-improved parking lot. A sign says the improvements are for the Gold Mine trail; you come to that trail about 1/4 mile up. Then you come to an unlocked gate.

The water is still flowing quite well; I agree that this is the best time to hike here. The petroglyphs are nice, though bubba-glyphs also are present. Another hiker pointed out what he called balance rock, a small boulder precariously balanced on the ridge to the right of and above the end of this trail.

All in all, a lovely hike. It was getting quite crowded by the time I returned (see photo); there were about 20 horses taking the Goldmine trail.
