Bug Springs is roughly a 9 mile out and back trek with 2000 ft of gain. You go from the exposed scrub desert vegetation up to the shade of the pines, crossing several dry washes. The turn around point is near the Bear Canyon picnic area. The trail is a favorite of hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers and dog walkers. The trailhead is up the road a little past Gordon Hirabiashi (Prison Camp) campground.
I will try to keep the group together, but we may split into faster and slower groups, so be prepared to hike on your own. I will wait at junctions, but not forever!
Bring the usual: plenty of water, snacks, hat, sunscreen
