In summary, OUCH!

Right now Deer Creek #45 is heavily overgrown and very difficult to hike. Heavy pants and long selves might help but your still gonna get snagged and unless you have something protecting your face it will still be uncomfortable. I’m still removing thorns from several deep gashes I received.

We bailed into the creek bed before hitting the grave site and decided to just hike into Bars Canyon a bit which somewhat salvaged the trip as Bars and Shake Tree Canyons piqued my interest for a future trip.

If anyone is aware of any planned maintenance on this trail PM me, I have a brush cutter blade I’d like to test out :)
