    Indian Henry's Hunting Ground is not easy to get to from the Kautz Creek Trail. Parts of it are steep and dry. But the destination is worth it. Take time to chat with the ranger in the cabin and watch for bears. You might just see the resident mama blackie and a cub.

    After making the leg up the Kautz Creek Trail, I intersected the Wonderland. I headed south. It was a bit over a mile to the Devils Dream Campground and the trail was easy going. From there the trail was pretty much an constant descent to the Kautz Creek crossing. From the creek there was a bit of a climb over the ridge and then again it resumed a descent. I met a couple of couples out for short hikes and one couple that seemed to be totally in the wrong place. The weather was clear and warm. The going was fairly easy, other than the pounding of my knees. Of course launching the Wonderland from Longmire means for the most part you are in a steady climb to meadow where the Kautz Creek Trail intersects, about a 6 mile hump. After I reached Longmire I began the hike back to my car which was still at the Kautz Creek parking area. It was an easy hike, just over 3 miles. Overall a great day of hiking.
