Soda Springs Trail from its junction at Buckeye Trail to highway 1 was beautiful today. Trail is in very good shape. Water crossings no problem, shoes on.

A VWA/USFS Volunteer Ranger patrolled the trail today. The trail is clear with encroaching brush. One bay tree fell across the trail about half way to Buckeye Trail It has been cleared enough that a minor duck will get you past. Tread is in fair condition.

Recent report indicates this short 1/2 mile of trail is clear to the Buckeye Trail Junction. Recent rains have brought out plenty of ticks. So beware.

Darlene and I had a chance to Patrol this trail all the way to Buckeye Camp. The trail is basically clear all the way to camp. There is one large oak about 1/3 mile past the Soda Springs Jct. That is easy to duck under.

Darlene and I had a chance to patrol this trail today. We can say the trail is clear with minor encroaching brush. Tread is in fair condition with some recent minor work to make footing better. A short section but nice change from coming out of the Salmon Creek Station.

General Condition: Wilderness Freeway (Heavily used and well maintained)

This trail is short, but sweet. A nice oak grove and even a nice ceanothus "grove" provide shade. Beautiful view to the south, complete with wildflowers, at the top.

No encroaching poison oak. No deadfalls. No brush. No missing tread. No hassles from flies or ticks (on this day, anyway).

Walked up this last weekend on the way to Buckeye Camp, it is Wilderness Freeway, no brush encroachment or downed trees or branches. The view from the Soda Springs Trail/Buckeye Trail junction over towards Salmon Creek and the Mount Mars western ridge was beautiful, all is very green:

Trail is mostly clear of poison oak. Washouts have been dug out and the trail has been reconstructed in spots. Stair steps have been installed at two locations on the trail where there are steep slopes. Small debris has been cleared away. NO drinking water on trail.

This is a short trail that allows you to access Buckeye trail north of Salmon Creek. Oak groves and nice views. Trail is mostly clear of poison oak. Washouts have been dug out and the trail has been reconstructed in spots. Stair steps have been installed at two locations on the trail where there are steep slopes. Small debris has been cleared away. NO drinking water on trail.
