Miller Creek trail is fairly well maintained only got off trail a few times but with the GPS was able to correct before too long. This trail is steep with a lot of step ups which make it harder. There was water crossing the trail in many places but that's to be expected in February. The Rincon Trail was very well maintained for a trail that isn't used very often (The middle section was a little overgrown but not bad, the lower section was maintained and work on it was probably done within the last 2 weeks). Water was also readily available on this trail, again to be expected for February. I have not been on this trail since the mid 60's when we use to come up this way through the X-9 Ranch. I still think it was one of the best routes to get up to Mica Mountain. The trail has very little step ups like the Miller creek trail and is a slow steady climb.
