CT Chapparal Trail (Orestimba) 1.72 H E 11/22/21

No indication of the beginning of the trail on county line road. Overall trail is passable, fire helped a lot. Where not affected by fire, encroaching chamise, need to push through at places. At the last knob where trail starts to descend steeply it is possible to loose the trail, since the right way is blocked by large chamise bush. I built an arrow out of the rocks to point to the right direction. (Posted by Sue V702 as reported by Elena V720)

DMT Dormida Trail (Dormida) 1.33 H B E 04/23/21 Dormida Trail to Sturla Dormida Spring - open and clear. Sturla Dormida Springs Trail to Dormida Trail -Trail head marked by t-post. First ¼ mile obscured by grass, but flagged. Rest of trail down to the spring is free of brush but new bushes coming in the last 1/8 of a mile. Dormida Trail to Vasquez Trail - once trail heads steeply down it’s overgrown with grass. Easy to follow going down, but for some reason harder to follow on the way back up. Some flagging of the trail, and near the bottom the flags take an alternate path to the south of the actual path. The trail marker at the intersection of Dormida and Vasquez trails shows Vasquez trail going up towards to Vasquez peak, and up towards Center Flat, but does not call out Dormida Trail.

DFT Drift Fence Trail (Phegley) 0.81 H B E 06/06/21

Open and clear Wagon Road to Vasquez Road. Over grown and hard to find/follow. Some well traveled game trails seemed like they could be part of the trail, then they cross the fence through the barbed wire. For a bit, could find/follow the remnants of an old road. Not on recent maps but an un-marked post remains where it meets WR. This was the original route to Vasquez Peak.

(Posted by Sue V702 as reported by visitors)
FLT Frog Lake Trail (Western) 1.03 H 11/20/21

Open. A gray pine with twin 7" trunks blocks the trail at the junction with Two Oaks Camp Tr. We were able to trim some branches to reveal the trail sign. It is possible to get around by going off trail. (To maintenance: A larger crew needs to cut and remove the tree in order to clear the path.) Also, a section of trail is eroded enough to be narrow and side-sloped at 37.207 N, 121.545 W. (Posted by Sue V702 as reported by trainee Virginia G.)

MST Mount Stakes Trail (Orestimba) 4.40 H E 04/13/21 Mt. Stakes Trail (from Red Creek Rd. to the signpost where it begins steeply descending north to Pinto Creek). There is no discernable "junction" at Red Creek but if you know the spur ridge that the trail is on you will see evidence of an old road most of the way. The fire has made it more visible. You just follow the spur ridge up, taking the path of least resistance. That usually means staying on the old road but sometimes not, since the road is blocked by growth or deadfall at times. From the unnamed summit down to the junction with the unnamed trail it's wide open. The unnamed "trail" down to Robison Creek, as opposed to the continuation of the Mt. Stakes Trail to Pinto Creek, is definitely the easiest way down. It was clear almost the entire way down, with just a short section of pushing through some unburned chaparral. You want to keep a close eye on your map as it's not obvious when you need to turn due south and drop down off the spur ridge. (Posted by Sue V702 as reported by visitor Scott F.)

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)
