If you take the Herman Creek trail to the Casey Creek junction, there's an excellent campground, with a use trail heading downhill to Herman Creek.

Re: 2013: Back on the Trail, Again!

I lurk here a lot more than I post, but it's been such an incredible joy reading all your trip reports this year! I think my wife and I ran into you guys on the Lily Basin trail around all the waterfalls - you were stopped eating an apple or something, and your excitement was infectious.

Ruckel Ridge Loop - Oct. 19, 2013

I did a version of this hike with my dad a few weeks ago, but it was too foggy to get many pictures.

Timberline to Zigzag in the Snow - Oct. 5

We wanted to get out and see some of the new snow, so we took a quick drive up to Timberline Lodge and a quick walk over to the bottom of Zigzag Canyon. The snow started in earnest around 4500 ...

Re: Sahalie/ Koosah / Blue Pool / McKenize / Clear Lake 10/4

Those reflections of the fall colors are fantastic, thanks for posting! I haven't explored that area enough, but I'll definitely have to give it a go now!
