My daughter Natalie wanted to go camping. I decided the cabin loop area would provide some nice camping and some relatively easy hiking as well. We drove to the trailhead near Pinchot Cabin via rim rd 300 and fr 95.

We found a nice campsite within a quarter mile of the trailhead off fr 96. A fire had burned through here within the last few years. Enough pine needles have fallen to cover the charcoal. Grass and flowers are growing under the tall pines. Looks healthy to me.

We set up camp then hiked to the trailhead and down to Pinchot cabin. Houston Brothers trail looked nice so we started our hike here in the late afternoon. Much of the trail was shaded which was nice. Flowing water, pines, and green were the theme.

When we reached Aspen Springs there was a large group of backpackers there. Beautiful location. It was getting late so we turned around here and made it back to camp at sunset. The next morning we started up U-Bar but Natalie wasn't feeling good so we called it day early.

Wild flowers are out. We saw a turkey, elk, and colorful western tanager.

We returned via fr 95 instead of taking the 300 back. Nicer road. Recommended entry route. Fun trip. :)
