One of my most favorite trails ever. Portions of this trail were hard to find, so a GPS device is essential. The views and changing scenery make for a very scenic lively trip. It's quite a workout with drastic changes in elevation. Check out some of the photos I've posted from thsi trip.

In March, 2005, Spring Creek was a pleasant babble. The trail was fairly easy to follow, and the whole loop made a great, relaxed day-hike. The only part of the trail that took some time to find was a trail marker identifying where you leave Spring Creek and start climbing Casner. Walk right up to an old fence that stretches across the creek - it is marked with beer can ornaments - a great use for someone's sloppiness. You can not miss the trail along the fence. The views of Mooney Canyon as you climb up Casner Mountain were fanastic, but the best views were from the top, at points where you can see both Sycamore and Mooney Canyons - one on each side of the ridge. The top of Casner Mountain itself is nothing to write about, it's all about the views. The whole loop was wonderfully quiet.
