Forecast was for a bit warmer temperatures, so we thought we would give this one a try. Beginning of trail was great, but as we approached Workman creek, we started to run into shrubbery an other plants overgrowing the trail. we pushed through to the first Workman Creek crossing at 2.03 miles, and it was flowing quite well. Since there was only one crossing I was able to convinced the wife to continue on.

Although the trail was easy enough to follow it is apparent this trail is does not get much maintenance, or traffic. There was a lot of overgrowth for the rest of the hike, sometimes we found ourselves swimming through the bushes and occasional cat-claw like plants. Make sure to have long sleeve shirt and long pants for this hike. We finally got to the end of the hike where we again encountered Workman Creek, and it was raging quite well. We didn't try to go upstream to look for the JUG or any other features and headed back.

I'm not sure I would recommend this hike, It is mostly forest hiking, I prefer the desert where you can see things. The bushwhacking was not real fun either.

On a more positive note, we did notice some AMAZING poppies on highway 180 a bit past mile marker 220 there are a number of hillsides covered with them. If you like the wildflowers you should check this one out. I'm behind on my pictures, but I'll post one of these so you can get an idea.
