How do you spell Solitude? BIG SUR 2017

Postby Jeff Cannon on Sat May 06, 2017 7:05 pm

I had a remarkable hike today, May 6th out of Ragged Point. There was not another soul in the wilderness from there to Buckeye Camp, on a Saturday no less! It was a fully immersive experience between waist high grasses, bushes absolutely loaded with flowers hanging over the trails, and of course nearly impassable sections of chaparral. It is absolutely gorgeous up there right now and backpackers will have the whole place to themselves. Salmon Creek has an amazing amount of water in it. Every Blue line stream is going strong!

My route today was through Dutra Flat, up Dutra Trial to the Coast Ridge Road, North to Cruikshank, over Silver Peak, down to Buckeye and down to Salmon Creek. By returning to Ragged Point from Salmon Creek on the closed PCH, the total distance was just under 24 miles.

Hope you will find a few days to get out there before the flowers are gone!
