7.6 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain •

First time on Cool Creek Trail - will revisit as a bike 'n hike loop with other trails on Hunchback Mtn. Nice trail and does not mess around with long switchbacks. Good water about halfway up. Buffoons I passed at the junction with the short trail to the peak had left hot coals in a fire ring next to the lookout. I used what water I had to extinguish and dumped as much dirt on as I could. They had apparently come up from Kinzel Lake Rd as they left in that direction and did not look the type for hiking serious elevation. I say decommission Kinzel Lake Rd and maybe that will keep the riff-raff from burning down the lookout.

Wow, I'd "sign on" to that suggestion! That's too easy an approach to instill the proper appreciation for that treasure.
