It’s a 3.5 mile, two-and-a-half-ish hour hike from ‘Twin Falls Hollow’ back to the Hercules Glades Tower Trailhead. After yesterday’s hike, my weekend mileage was currently around 12 miles. Adding on the 5-plus miles of the Pees Hollow Trail to my return trip would get me to my goal of 20 backpacking miles for the month. I’d make up my mind when I got to the Pees Hollow Trail branch off of the Pilot Trail.

I was all packed up and back on the trail shortly after 11:30 a.m. Hiking back didn’t take long, and by 1:15 p.m. I was at the western junction of the Pees Hollow Trail, and about ten minutes from the trailhead. The trailhead was calling me, but I decided to go and check the water situation on the Pees Hollow Trail. I stopped a short way off the trail for lunch by ‘Cab Creek’. I had a cup of tea, some tuna, and nuts and raisins. The spring there had run dry, and the creek appeared to be dry with just a few unsavory looking pools. So no drinking water here then.

Getting to the Cab (after which I’ve named ‘Cab Creek’) I couldn’t resist the inevitable selfie.
