39 Sierra Madre to Orchard Camp

Participants: Craig Cheetham and Tom Chester
Date: 9 July 1996 (Written up 28 July 1996)

Robinson claims this trip is 9 miles round trip, but my pedometer gave 7 and the sign at the trailhead gives something like 7 as well. (I didn't write it down, so I am reconstructing it from my pedometer mileage at the sign at First Water, saying 2.0 miles to Orchard Camp.)

Trail is beautiful as always.
