This is not a "0.14-miles-down-the-trail-after-crossing-a-little-spring-you'll-seethis-big-cottonwood-next-to-a-giant-rock-that-looks-like-a-cougar-with-a-nicelog-to-sit-on-if-it-is-dry-and-sunny" kind of guidebook. This guide gives enough specifics to get there and back. Expect to explore along the way. In some cases, the route is so obvious as to preclude much need to describe. The descriptions are designed to be followed using just your own senses and the map (and compass). For example, a reference to "peak 6675" refers to an unnamed peak on the USGS 7.5' quad map at 6,675 feet elevation.
