The original plan was to do an extended version of the Cabin Loop but I didn’t check the fire situation and the forest service had closed the area when we arrived at FR 300. I had cell signal so I slapped together an alternate route close by on the Happy Jack AZT #28 section.

We car camped Friday night and got started hiking at 5am. Morning route took us on some forest roads until we eventually looped around to the AZT at Bargaman Park. From there we headed southbound on old AZT before meeting up with the newly completed section at Wild Horse Tank. We continued southbound following flags on the yet to be completed AZT for about 3 miles. It was interesting to explore this yet to be completed trail which takes if off the road and on single track. Eventually we got back on the current AZT and hiked back to Wild Horse Tank where we then hiked another new section northbound back to Bargaman Park.

From Bargaman Park the AZT goes back to original trail as we headed northbound towards Gooseberry Trail head. We hiked within about 2 miles of the trailhead before we had to leave trail and follow old road back to our car camp spot. Long day but nice to see all the newly completed and soon to be completed AZT on this section. Also, great to see it being moved off the roads and onto nice single track.
