Hike Review: East Fork Canyon of Mountain Home Creek

There is not much of a trail here.  We followed what appeared to be a trail that would disappeared and then quickly reappear.  The going was slow.  The canyon walls are steep. In April the water runs strong and surprisingly we encountered the darting glitter of fish dashing beneath rock shelters.  The poison ivy is not that abundant, but there are variety of different types of trees, shrubs, flowers, and ground cover along this trail.  Also, much rock scrambling and unfortunately no snakes. But we were greeted with the flutter and song of a few quail.  Prepare for a lot of rock scrambling and creek jumping.  All this with my boy T to the E.
