We decided to do a quick recon on Davenport Trail #89 from Chilson Camp via Barnhardt TH. Lee was doing a backpack but we only had time for a day hike so we joined him for the hike in. From Chilson Lee and I tried to follow the Davenport Trail west towards South Fork of Deadman Creek. While Kathy went up the Mazatzal Divide to enjoy the falls around North Fork of Deadman Creek. Pretty sure she got the better hike but we were determined to recon the condition of Davenport Trail. First mile of the trail we could follow, but the next mile and a half was very difficult to follow. This area was burned badly by the Willow Fire in 2004 with no attempt at trail maintenance since then. We would see the occasional cairn for the trail but no evidence of one. The last 1/4 mile down to the creek is really steep and fortunately we were able to pick up remnants of the trail. After relaxing around the creek I hiked maybe another 1/2 mile past the creek to see the trail condition. First 1/4 mile is ok but after that the trail is pretty much gone again. The recon was a good first attempt with the ultimate goal getting to Club Cabin but based on trail conditions it would be a long slog for sure.

We hiked back to Chilson Camp and linked up with Kathy. She reported that the side drainages into North Fork of Deadman Creek were running strong...would have been nice to see but the recon took priority on this outing. After hanging out at Chilson with Lee for a bit we headed back down Barndhardt to the TH. Interesting to see Davenport Trail again and definitely have to go back to check out the rest of the trail to Club Cabin.
