Pine Creek was my destination for an overnight stay. Started from the Tule parking area at 7AM. The road is in excellent shape, all cars can make it. The first 5 miles are obviously all uphill. Previous descriptions include loose footing and sparse cairns along this route. Both still apply. Saw a group of maybe 3-5 hiking in behind me but never got too close. Made Two Bar intersection at 9:30. After a short break it was on towards Reavis Gap. Two Bar follows a fence line for the next mile or so before dropping about 800 feet down into what is probably a dry canyon other times of the year. About halfway down I came upon three hikers. The N, Dallin, and Alex were heading uphill on their way towards a pickup at Roosevelt lake the next day. Only people I passed on the trip. Good to meet Dallin and Alex, The N and I plotted a mission for warmer weather to Victorine Crossing. After a quick chat, Dallin pointed out my impending climb up the other side of this canyon so it was onto filter some water and then climb. Somebody left a clif bar by the creek? Once out of the canyon it was a pleasant stroll to Walnut Spring and then a right turn on Reavis Gap trail. Just 15 minutes more and I was hearing the rushing water at Pine Creek. Similar to Hells Hole, there are two obvious campsites here, one is sort of a double. I camped there and it was very nice. Lots of wood left over for the next camper.
The overnight temps were mild and there was no wind to speak of. I packed up and headed out. Filtered some more water by the abandoned clif bar and made the push on up and out. The long downhill of Tule to finish was enjoyable during the heat of the day. Bummer traffic on the way back from the Renaissance festival.
