Hint #2: This is in the Collawash drainage. A big stream is directly behind me about 30 ft straight down

So Brian is that the old Bagby Trail along the Hot Springs Fork of the Collawash River?

Don you're very close. You could've indeed gotten to Baghby on this trail, but it's not the one that takes off at the hard corner in the road.

That'd be the one. This spot is the west bank of where the trail crossed Hugh Creek. (It's the creek on the map between Nohorn Creek and Baghby.) Donovan has been here, but that's no shock.

IMG_2256.jpgOK then here is another trail for you to decipher the whereabouts of what trail am I on? It is a current trail, but this section is often bypassed by an upper road access.

You are correct, it is on the lower segment of the trail that comes up from the bridge on 224 near Indian Henry or 4620 road. Your turn!

You guys were posting so much today I missed all the fun!  I got Don's posting on my phone (minus the photo) and based on his clue, I wondered if it was the lower section of Cripple Creek.  You guys just gave me a few more trails to put on my list...

That photo of the lower Cripple Creek trail segment should have looked familiar Rob for you, Kirk and I hiked the trail during the winter a few years ago. That Nohorn Creek trail comes off the bottom end of the South Fork Mtn. Trail before it ties into the Bagby Trail. I had never looked for that one yet, but looking at the satellite photos it looks to be in old growth along the creek. It stays on the north side of the creek until it crosses back over where Brian found it near Hugh Creek. At the time I was more interested in the SFM trail and found several segments heading up to Baty Butte. There are also parts of the old Baby Trail scattered all the way to Austin Point.

Ok here's an abandoned trail that's also NOT in a wilderness. This particular spot is in excellent shape. Someone had flagged this when I stumbled onto it. Subsequent looking through the TA archives found me a post of the finders. Elevation of trail? Normal years would find snow here for 5-6 months..

If u walked the trail behind me back in the day, you could've came to a place to fill your water. I don't know about you,but  I don't generally drink out of lakes and random streams.... Take that as a hint

I'm guessing this is the CST below the old ranger station location and above the 4550 road?

Winner. This is part of the 0.10 miles right above FR4550. It's a ways away from the actual spring, with that huge clearcut in between.

I believe the South Fork Mtn. Trail comes down to the Cold Springs Guard Station and goes further south from there and the CST starts below the cabin site. Just saying!
