What do you get when you have two chicks who picked two trails the night before and did no research? Lol well, you get a fail but a big adventure...

I had downloaded a couple of tracks for this one since they were inconsistent and I wasn’t sure what was correct. We first attempted to get to the start from the alternate track and that one wasn’t making sense upon arrival. We then switched to the official track and followed a maze of roads and gates to a suuuuper random area where Joe’s track was starting.

We started walking and then saw it was another super steep crazy awful old road we’d need to hike on. We already did that on our prior hike and weren’t feeling it so decided to drop straight into the canyon area then meet back up with the track.

This was going okay at first.... there was even some flow! As we continued it became a bit thicker and then the canyon abruptly ended at a large {dry} waterfall and swimming hole. Ooooops! We looked for bypass options on either side and they were all really sketchy (we did get a ways up one before calling it). We turned back and went back through the canyon, but ultimately decided to bust out some chairs and chill right there by our vehicles instead of giving it another go. We were both pleased with our decision, lol!

Our original target was to find the spring and the underground cave. Will definitely need to research better before another try! P.S. If anyone has the correct route to the spring and the cave and could point me in the right direction, that would be very helpful! TIA!
