This was the final, 3rd section of my trip, and was GORGEOUS. The trail was meticulously marked and maintained. I didn't realize until I got home that the crew had just been there the two days before, and wow, did they do a great job. Actually did the first 4.5 miles the day before, as I finished section 23. Set up camp at Brush Springs that night, and there were many gorgeous sites to choose from. The spring was full and flowing. Shared camp with a rattle snake, but that was the only venomous snake I saw. I was initially dreading the long downhill on this hike, but it was designed so well that it didn't kill my legs on the descent. I think the worst part of this section for me, (as well as section 25, since I'm section hiking) is the road from hell, aka the Doll Baby Ranch Road to the trail head.
