PIT Pinto Creek Trail (Orestimba) 2.30 H E 04/20/19 Coming down from the Mt Stakes Trail, backpacker Scott F reports:  "The Pinto Creek Trail to Robison Creek was extremely difficult. It took us about 4 hours to travel a little over 2 miles down the "trail"! At times there was an obvious sign of an old road, and there were even stretches where we walked on the road relatively free and clear. But they never lasted long. The road either disappeared or became overgrown with shrubbery, including much poison oak. We did a fair amount of traversing the very steep walls of the canyon to find a path, only to find it very difficult to get back down to creek level. Once we had to lower our packs to descend safely. One of the worse sections was where the trail climbs the southwest side of the canyon wall and then descends back down to the creek in a ravine. The climb was relatively OK, but the descent was choked with all sorts of growth, requiring steep traverses and bushwhacking both. I'm sensitive to poison oak and by now I can spot and avoid it almost instinctually, but there were times when we had no choice but to just barge through it. Anyway, when we finally emerged into the Robison Creek valley we were relieved!" (Posted by Paul V708)

RCR Red Creek Road (Orestimba) 10.46 H E V 12/29/18

Red Creek Road is clear between Chaparral Trail and Robison Creek Trail (Posted by Sue V702 as reported by Larry V785)

Earlier posts follow from 06/29/18.

Park visitor Hartmut W reports clear and easy to follow. Only challenging part is above (or west) of the falls where the road crosses Red Creek. This part is not as overgrown as last year and it is easy to follow the creek.The fallen tree west of the Pinto Creek junction is now easy to get through.

Robison Creek Trail from Chaparral Trail to Red Creek:  3 trees down on the Red Creek by-pass. All three can be avoided, not a major obstacle.  Trail is clear and easy to follow thanks to the bench. However the trail is covered with grass.

Robison Creek Trail / section south of Hatch Springs and up to the San Antonio Valley overlook:  Trail very difficult to follow around Hatch Springs. Will require major brush removal. Road is gone in sections (washed out by the river, or completely covered with grass or brush).  Nearly impassable brush and rattlesnakes.  The critical area is concentrated on 300 yards.  One tree to clear south of Hatch Springs at the turn-out (has been there for years, there is room around it).  3-4 trees to be removed north of Hatch Springs, one is a major obstacle.  Road / trail is disappearing north of Hatch Springs in places with grass taking over.  Road is in very good condition as it ascends towards the San Antonio valley.   (Posted by Sue V702)

Visitor Bill R reports, fun trail. I lost the trail a few times due to down trees and slides from where you first hit the creek until I got to Pinto Creek. Above and below this section was easy enough to follow. (Posted by Sue V702)

RMT Robison Mountain Trail (Orestimba) 2.62 H E 08/25/18 Park visitor Hartmut W reports "for the most part it's clear; a few parts are overgrown, but easy to get around. The trail is not visible in most parts, but the old trail followed the ridge line and is more obvious looking from the top down. No sign exists at the junction with the Rooster Comb Trail. At the top, after the junction with Murphy Trail, the trail becomes heavy overgrown with dense brush and impassable, until finding a way around the brushy area." (Posted by Paul V708)
