AZTEC FALLS/DEEP CREEK 9 6 09
Awesome day trip to Aztec falls. We hiked in to Aztec via Splinters Cabin. Afterward we hiked 25 min downstream to another swim spot. Fun time, big posse on this one. Hope The Pump is killin it in NH.
Directions: 210 east to 18 north and then east for 18 miles to Crest Park. Drive 3.1 miles north on State Road 173 through Lake Arrowhead to Hook Creek Road. Travel 3 miles east on Hook Creek, then bear left a short distance on Squint Ranch Road to a right-hand descent that leads .45 miles to Splinter’s Cabin and access to the Pacific Crest Trail. Hike .4 miles north (downstream) on the PCT to some spraypainted trees on the right. This is the trailspur that leads to the swimmin spot. Have fun and clean up your mess!
