Judge Davis/Redbud Trail link up in the Cache Creek Wilderness Area.
Temp: 17 degrees
Total Hiking Miles: 12.2
Hiking Time: 4.5 hours
Total Outing Miles: 21.6
My plan is to leave my truck at the Redbud Trail Head and ride my bike 9.4 miles up highway 20 the the Judge Davis Trail Head. Stash my bike in the brush, Get out of the cold weather cycling gear, slip into some hiking cloths and boot and take off.
The bike ride up was damn cold. It became a beautiful day for hiking once the sun was up and warmed things up. One very cold wet wade with the other two wades being no big deal. A great hike through Oak and Gray Pine forests and hillsides in the remote Wilson Valley.
Sunrise at the Redbud Trail.
