My numbers are a tad higher then the official route. Going to Bog Springs added a couple tenths and I went up Four Springs Trail a little by mistake. I left Bog Springs on my route but took the Four Springs Trail off so somebody didn't follow it.
I hit the trail a little before 1:00pm. It was a little warm with a breeze. I went clockwise. It's a climb but there are switchbacks to help ease your pain. Bog Springs was clean and Full. There are some big trees in this area. When I got to Kent Springs I was a little confused. I thought the trail going up was my trail and I was wrong. Great views from up here. When I looked at route scout I found the error of my ways. That trail is not marked. I found out later it was Four Springs Trail. I went back down to (dirty) Kent Springs and found the right trail. In two shakes of a lambs tail it opens up to look like a road. No switchbacks on this side so it is a little steeper. Sylvester Spring looked even better then Bogs. Shortly after the spring there was a creek running good and the water was crystal clear. The trail followed for a half mile or so then turned away. From there your back to the trailhead in no time.I saw about 8 people and a couple dogs. Maybe try and start a little earlier next time. :)

Half full and a little yucky. Looks like it use to have a float system but not anymore.
