    Hiked Friday 05/05/2023 solo – Deer Springs to Suicide Rock to Strawberry Junction to PCT (Strawberry Cienega Direction). Was going to do a quick out and back to Suicide Rock but the snow and weather were too optimal not to add Strawberry Junction and part of the PCT to Strawberry Cienega. First hike this year without mountain boots/auto crampons, using lower mid boots instead. You could easily wear trail runners for Suicide Rock and possibly for a trip to Strawberry Junction in another week. Not the case for PCT- high top boots/crampons still required. Amazing to see the drastic increase in snowmelt and volume of water coming down the mountain. Nice to hear the roar of the water even if it means more mud. Not many obstacles to get around on this trail including downed trees and water crossings, especially compared to the middle route/Devil’s Slide. Met a lot of friendly people starting up on my way out as now is a great time to consider hiking the lower part of this scenic trail with the bulk of the snow gone. Logged 10.4 miles/3161 vertical ft. on Gaia.

Deer springs trailhead to suicide Rock11/9/19 10:50:19 AM
Strenuous day hike for a casual hiker.. Views not super awesome but nice. Sign about quarter mile from the trailhead says you need to get a permit to go further. You need a state pass as well as a Forest service pass so look into those in Idlewild before heading to the trailhead. Overall nice hike took about 4 hours with lunch at Suicide Rock.
