Crossing the creek was no problem now, but it must have been tricky in the last several months due to the heavy rains of this winter. The horse trail is overgrown with mustard in places, and it has suffered pretty heavy erosion. However, there is only slightly tricky place at a switchback somewhat below the junction with the Toll Road.
The bugs were only bad when we got to Henninger Flats, and they were so bad there that we couldn't eat a snack without being eaten ourselves. We left quickly.
