I don't know which I enjoyed more, the drive to the trailhead or the hike itself. Both were certainly worthwhile.

Although I've been to Dripping Spring many times, this is the first time I've attempted it from the Woodbury TH. I was not disappointed. Interesting geology in the creek beds, opportunities to go exploring in the nearly hills that line the creeks and fabulous views. The best part of the hike is the area near Dripping Springs where the canyons come together. I love that area.

I saw two couples out hiking. I met the first not long after I started the hike. I met the other near JF Ranch as I was finishing the hike. I stopped and chatted with both. I finished the hike on the forest road just past JF Ranch. Nice, long uphill boost to finish the hike.

The skies were overcast for the most part with the sun peeking out as I returned along Fraser Canyon. Not much water in the creeks; a few pools here and there. The temps were perfect.

This was a very enjoyable hike.
