CHALLENGING DAY HIKE
12.5 miles 1,400' elevation gain
This hike is in the Cache Creek Natural Area, and follows the ridgeline border of the Cache Creek Wilderness (established 2006).
There is a crossing of Bear Creek. The flow ranges from easy to impassable. The Bear Creek Flow Gauge gives current flow readings.
This is former ranch country, and there are multiple old 4WD routes. Recommended to bring gps, if not well-skilled in following topography.
Trail has serious clay mud when wet; let dry for 10 or more days after rain before doing this hike.
If weather is warm it will dry sooner.
