Re: Trying to reach the Double Cone from Botcher's photos...

Mike, thanks for the info - my name is Gus - sugg is just something I had to use/ could remember for various forums. If a person finds themselves with an opportunity to do "clipping" type trail work, is that something a person can undertake on their own? - without forest service involvement?

Re: Trying to reach the Double Cone from Botcher's photos...

I'm possibly mistaken - I don't know whether or not that camp right before Pat Spring is called Pat Spring Camp?!? It's the one the VDC trail goes through, and then starts a much more pronounced climb (if heading towards the Double Cone). -Mike, the species you mentioned - I believe that's the green...

Trying to reach the Double Cone from Botcher's photos....

Yesterday I tried to reach the Double Cone starting from Botcher's Gap - started at 7:00AM and spent about 8.5 hours out there. The trails are awesome out to Pat Springs. Beyond Pat Springs - about a 1/4 to 1/2 mile, the VDC trail really starts becoming overgrown. Everything is doable, but it's defi...
