After hiking out of Hells Hole, setting up camp near the trail junction, and caching some water, I set off for Boyer Cabin.
The first mile and a half or so is pretty nice. The trail leads through pines most of this stretch. There is a small spring and empty trough in this area. I lost the trail when it made a right turn and fumbled around in the woods for about half an hour before finding it again. Further on the trail exits the pines following a drainage into more open scratchy bushes. Shortly after this the trail condition worsens. Don't try it in shorts! Pretty soon the trail leads down into another canyon that had a small flowing creek with good water. Followed by more nasty bushes. After that, you come out into the open and can see a very long way including Roosevelt lake and Four Peaks. The trail starts taking you downhill at this point. Unfortunately, this is where I lost the trail in tall grass. I just didn't think I'd have enough time to reach the cabin and then hike back to camp, so I headed back to camp instead. Actually, I was only about 1.5 miles from the cabin when I bailed. Made it back to camp at 5PM so, maybe made the right call. It was a breezy night but not too cold. On the hike out Saturday (only 3.5 miles or so), I stopped at the Workman creek crossing and off trailed downstream. There is no trail, you're feet will get wet, and there are more blackberry bushes to negotiate than at Horton Creek. Still, I only went downstream maybe a half mile, and I found some really nice pools and waterfalls to check out on the next trip.
