Whitney & I were wanting a weekend away from husbands and kids, but weren't actually wanting to work too hard. I tossed out a few easy suggestions, and this fit the bill. I had not been on this trail since 2005 (although an unreliable source says it was 2007, but this is why he's unreliable), and didn't really remember much about it, but recalled that I did enjoy it each time I camped down here.

FR119 has some deep ruts and holes, but is manageable when dry in a high-clearance vehicle, 4wd may be needed if wet or muddy. We got started around noon, it's a quick descent down to the creek, a little narrow in places but not bad, and picked a place to camp around 1:00. After that, we walked up and down the creek both directions from our camp, and I pointed out some of the other spots I've camped in the past. We also found some good places to bring the kids for swimming next summer. --Stats above include the mileage we walked along the creek.-- There are some fall colors, but they seem to be past peak already?

After that, we sat around and relaxed, not doing much of anything, then made dinner, enjoyed the moon rise, and went to bed as the fire died down. We headed back up to the car shortly after waking up this morning. Not a bad climb out, but warm in the sun even though it was in the 50's. Very enjoyable quick overnight trip!

Some color, but seems to be mostly muted/faded.
