In surprisingly good shape, although there are several washouts near the bottom, beginning about a half mile from Davy Brown camp. Just follow the creek and you will be ok.

A much steeper trail than I realized. Hiking downhill is very difficult in some places.

There is a trail junction about a mile down from the trailhead at Figueroa Road. The trail on the right is the Willow Springs Connector; the one on the left is the Munch Canyon Spur. Davy Brown Trail continues as the middle trail on the right hand side of the creek.

My mistake; at the trail junction, the trail on the RIGHT is Munch Canyon Spur, and the trail on the LEFT is Willow Springs Connector. Sorry about that.hills

The old cabin is probably where the ruins are. Pretty near to a large oak tree with a fire ring beneath it is a little crook in the trail. Off to the west about 10 feet are some old ruins. Just old rusty trash now. Not much to see.

Surprisingly good shape. There are 2 or 3 easily-passable downed trees. Just below the 3-way junction, the Davy Brown trail hops over to the east side of the creek briefly, but it is actually easier to climb onto the west slope (officially the Willow Springs Trail) and follow it for a hundred feet or so up to the junction.
