1st trip
I did not see Mudhole Spring (on the Turkey Creek Trail) in the list for 'spring reports'. Mudhole IS flowing and the water is good. Flowing may-be a quart a minute at most.

This was a backpack that encompassed all of the linked trails as well as Deer Head and the whole myriad of trails surrounding Mica Mountain: Mica Meadow, Mica Mountain, Bonita, Fire Loop, etc. We visited: Mica Mountain summit, Spud Rock (Much better views that Mica Mountain), Manhead, Duckbill, Reef Rock and others.
This area is wonderful! Where else could one go to a cool, 8000'+ area on Memorial Day W/E and see but 2 people. The trails are in awesome shape (with the exception of the Miller Creek) and the terrain and views from around Mica Mountain are awesome.
