WOW! The forest Service did a great job of rehabilitating this trail. Five or so years ago a few friends of mine and I bushwhacked this trail and it was a true test of route finding. This was prior to the advent of the GPS. We didn't need a GPS, just strong calf muscles for the uphill climb in the hot sun. Next time I will start from Bear Canyon Trailhead and get the uphill out of the way first. I love how you drop down into a little traveled canyon with Ponderosa Pine and follow a creek bed. Bug Springs is worth the trip.
