This outing utilizes two non-maintained, seldom used, very old miners trails. The Devils Gate and Bogus Thunder mine trails. The trail down is steep, brushy and difficult to follow and is loaded with poison oak. The reward at the bottom of the trail is a huge high walled pool about 30 feet deep and cold.
