Outer Mountain Loop
Difficulty: Strenuous; significant elevation changes and primitive trail
Caching WaterCarrying adequate water is always a concern on this trail. Do not rely on seasonal or intermittent springs. We recommend that you carry a minimum of one gallon of water per person per day. Water can be cached in storage boxes at the Homer Wilson/Blue Creek Ranch and at the end of the Juniper Canyon road (Juniper Canyon requires a high clearance vehicle). When caching water, remember to mark each bottle with your name and the date you plan to pick up the water. Please pack out empty bottles. Only water can be stored in the storage boxes. Food and supplies left in the boxes are subject to removal.
