The road to the trailhead from FR 25 was dozed recently and is in best condition I've ever seen. The trail itself is good down to the point where it decends into the bottom of the draw. From there recent deadfall becomes a real nuisance. This is also poison ivy central. At the creek we went downstream, planning to stop at reservation boundary. It is so obscure, we completely missed it and trespassed half a mile onto San Carlos. We discovered our mistake on the return when we encountered a sign welcoming us to the national forest. Went upstream to the fish barrier dam and a ways beyond. Brush along the creek so thick it's difficult to see the stream. Gathering dark clouds encouraged us to cut our hike short, and we walked in gentle rain half way back to car. Saw turkeys on the drive in and one other hiker on the trail. It was a tougher hike than we anticipated.
