We hiked down the trail from Cedros Saddle in mid-March. The frist leg to the road junction is fine, but the trail gets worse and worse as you descend. Very washed out after the 3rd (?) road crossing to the point of being unhikable. The trail had become a flood drainage, and was a deep gully full of tree roots! In fact, we decided it would be easier to hike down the road the rest of the way to Manzana, which it was.

Hiked up Sulphur Spring Trail on 9 April 2006. The Trail has been beautifully cleared and groomed. Thank you to those who worked on the Trail. Flowing water near the trail for most of the bottom three sections.

(southern) Sulpher Springs trail update

Tried to hike Sulpher Springs trail from the southern trailhead north to Manzana Schoolhouse on May 10th, 2010. The trail is severely overgrown and nearly impossible to follow unless you are already familiar. The rains of this past winter have also washed three parts of the southern trail out. It is passable, but a bit on the dangerous side with a heavy pack on your back. I had a late start and only made it to the first intersection of the jeep trail. I could not see where the trail continued once reaching the jeep trail. I could have just followed the jeep trail but was nervous with the extra miles and the lack of daylight left. I had no gps and it was my first time hiking that trail. I was very behind schedule with sunlight so I decided to turn around and go back up the hill and try another day....most likely with a machete.
