Spent a nice weekend camped out in Cedar Basin near the Hell Canyon TH. Both Mornings were SUPER cold with a heavy dew that froze over by morning. We actually hike the loop starting at the Hell Canyon TH heading towards the canyon. After exploring the canyon, which was absolutely beautiful, we back tracked and started heading towards Horse creek. We made our way out of the canyon finally intersecting the road at the first horse creek TH. We then headed back north towards Hell Canyon TH and then to camp. It ended up being a six mile loop...

over all REALLY enjoyed this loop. it would actually make a really nice, but short overnight. lots of nice spots for back country camping.
