Cache Creek Wilderness Loop

Trail map. Roughly 20 mile loop. Lots of bushwacking and route finding.

The beginning of the trail provides great views out to Fiske Peak and the Cortina Ridge.

I recently watched a documentary about "Umbrellas"--the massive landscape art project that Christo put up in California and Japan in the early 1990s. These trees reminded me of those umbrellas.

This is where the trail goes from a peaceful walk in the oak groves to an exposed march down a spur ridge into Cache Creek.

If you look closely you can see the trail winding its way down the ridge all the way into Cache Creek.

First view of water.

Ropy tree.

The wilderness.
