HJ, good detective work! I wondered about that last time I went into Dobbs. I like the SGW Harrison maps, but sadly, it appears to have the same error as the USGS map, where the Dobbs spur trail heading down the slope rather than angling toward the confluence of the Falls Creeks. |
: There are a number of errors on the
: USGS topo map of he Momyer,
: Alger, and Falls Creek Trails in the
: San Gorgonio Wildnerness.
: 1. On the Alger Creek Trail, Alger
: Creek Camp is shown on the map at
: point "B". While this
: would be a fine place to camp, it's
: not where the camp is. The actual
: camp is at point "A".
: 2. At point "C" on the
: cutoff trail to Dobbs Camp, the
: trail is shown plunging straight
: down the hillside. Uh, no. The
: trail follows a line more closely
: described by points "C",
: "D", and "E"
: arriving near the confluence of the
: North and East Forks of Falls Creek.
: 3. Saxton campsite is shown as being
: up on the side of a hill at point
: "G". Don't think so.
: Saxton campsite is actually down in
: the flat at point "F".
: 4. The little cut off trail in
: Plummer Meadow described by points
: "H" and "I" no
: longer exists.
