>From my recollection, last year, we considered using the Deer Springs Trail
to get back up to the PCT when there was a fire that shut down 40 miles of
trail forcing us to road walk from Paradise Cafe to Idyllwild.  The general
concensus from town folk was that the Deer Springs trail was narrow, steep,
and not well maintained.  Thankfully, the Devil's slide trail opened up and
we were able to go that route.

Be well,
