Haypress - McCash Loop Professional Review and Guide
"The Haypress Trail leads deep into the Marble Mountains Wilderness and passes through the scene of a recent forest fire, where hikers can witness nature healing itself. Higher up, the trail travels through a series of alpine meadows before climbing a steep slope and returning along the McCash Loop. This return route highlights the loop’s exposed ridge and panoramic views. But there are only a few sources of water along the ridge portion of the trail, so be sure to come prepared. Fill up your water bottle before you get there, or bring enough to last the entire trip. Also, be aware that hunting season begins in September. Terrain: Dirt path through dense conifer forest, across alpine meadows, and along exposed ridges."
