Trail Report

In the form below, select the date you used the trail and a rating of its general passability. Follow up with a detailed narrative of specific conditions, needed repairs, etc. To keep reports accurate, please indicate which section of the trail you used, and please post separate reports for separate trails. For example, if you hiked from China Camp to Pine Valley, report on Pine Ridge Trail from China Camp to Church Creek Divide, then post a separate report on Carmel River Trail from Church Creek Divide to Pine Valley. “Trip reports” involving numerous trails belong on the Ventana Discussion forum, not here! If you are unsure about the name of a trail, don’t guess, simply consult this map. To protect opportunities for discovery and solitude, the moderators may edit or delete reports that reference sensitive features like unofficial trails, cross-country routes, hot springs or cultural sites. Thank you for contributing to this valuable community resource and keeping Wilderness wild!

Date Hiked: December 10, 2017
General Condition: Clear (no obstacles and tread well defined)

The Cook-Carrizo connector is underneath the sugar pines so it is not a section conducive to rapid brush growth but it was recently brushed so any brush has been cleared. The junction with the Carrizo Trail is marked by a wooden post and currently there's also some orange flagging. The tread is faint but followable as it traverses the hillside. The junction with the Cooks Spring Trail is marked by a rock cairn. Flow at Cooks Spring is slow (20 oz takes about a minute).
