A friend and I lost a dog up in the Hilton/Davis Lakes area on July 16th. If anyone notices any sign of a lost, 90lb, black/brindle (white chest) hound dog roaming around in the woods, please call David at 305-333-8681. Any sign of him, however uncertain, will be much appreciated. Thanks everyone!
We did this hike as an out-and-back starting from the Hilton Creek trailhead at Crowley Lake (the end of the hike in this guide). This entire hike is very do-able in a day, we went from crowley lake to Davis Lake in about 6 hours (approx 10 miles), with a long lunch break at Davis Lake. Very dry switchbacks going up Hilton Head from our trailhead. At the John Muir wilderness, go left to go over the saddle between Mt. Morgan and Red Mtn. You can see the remains of some mines on Mt Morgan. Fording Hilton Creek was cold, but not difficult with the snowmelt. Nice gradual hike up the canyon from there. Very cold up at the lakes, as they were still mostly frozen with some snow patches on the ground.
