This was a hike down into the bottom of Cherry Creek Canyon from my campsite off of FR 203 near the north Grapevine Trail Head. I was planning on moving my campsite down FR 203 later in the day to check road conditions and damage from the Juniper Fire so it was to be a short hike. It was supposed to be an easy hike following cattle trails down to the water but it soon became apparent that there were no cattle trails for good reason - too much brush and cliffs. However after thrashing through the brush I found a break in the cliffs and reached a scenic section of Cherry Creek. I followed the creek down canyon past Cold Water Creek and then went back up stream a short distance where I found a very steep chute leading up through a break in the cliffs that provided an exit route back to camp. It was a good workout rewarded with a scenic section of Cherry Creek.
