Dennis Clark was born in Los Angeles in 1942 and after 76 years of living in So Cal he moved to Emmett, Idaho with his wife Patricia, has four adult children with many grand and great grandchildren. He has loved the outdoors since his Cub Scout and Boy Scout days while camping with the family. He's an archer, hunter and fisherman but no longer wishes to harm animals. He has been involved with photography since the 1960's. He became more of a serious hiker in 2010 when he started Geocaching and has hiked the three tallest peaks in So Cal, Mt San Jacinto, Mt San Gorgonio and Mt Baldy, along with most of the lesser peaks in search of caches. Geocaching started his love for the USFS Trail system as he used the trails frequently to get to certain trailheads. He had a 2002 Ford Ranger 2wd and its amazing where that little pickup took him. In 5 years of weekly geocaching he was only stuck once in some Palm Springs sand. His 2016 Wrangler Sport Unlimited was purchased in 2015. He has become quite lazy in the hiking department as he can now drive to most locations. He's looking forward to posting some trails and don't hesitate to ask him for any help you might need.

East Fork Scriver Creek (06/15/2021)
One thing that helps us enjoy the beauty of this forest and this trail is the close proximity to our home, 1 hour! We will return to this trail and area frequently. For camping, this trail can't be beaten unless you include the 6-mile drive along 693 Scriver Creek Road to get to this trailhead. That road follows Scriver Creek and there are multiple creekside campsites available.
Wash Creek (06/11/2021)
We mapped Mica Dome a few days ago which is a spur off Horn Creek so we welcomed the chance to re-run this great trail. Absolutely beautiful in the springtime. We wish this fantastic campsite was more removed from the nearest home, about 100 yards, but it is what is.
Wash Creek Ridge (06/11/2021)
We mapped Mica Dome a few days ago which is a spur off Horn Creek so we welcomed the chance to re-run this great trail. Absolutely beautiful in the springtime. I love the 360-degree views you get from a ridge trail!
Horn Creek (06/11/2021)
We mapped Mica Dome a few days ago which is a spur off Horn Creek so we welcomed the chance to re-run this great trail. Absolutely beautiful in the springtime. We were here on a Sunday but had the trail to ourselves.
Mica Dome (06/10/2021)
Pat and I love the Garden Valley/Crouch area of Idaho. We can get to this area in 1 hour from the house. It's a great spot for some easy wheeling, take some photos, have a picnic lunch, and watch for wildlife. We return to these trails every year.
Squaw Butte Lookout (05/18/2021)
This trail is literally in my backyard! Whenever we have visitors, it requires a run-up Squaw Butte! Today was quite windy so no chance to get any drone footage at the summit. We will return and add some more photos and video.
Lightning Creek (04/22/2021)
Just enough snow to make it fun! If you follow the guide and drive 5 miles you will come to the trail's end at an open gate. The trail beyond appears to be totally vehicle-ready however the Forest Service's MVUM clearly states no motorized traffic beyond this point. This was a beautiful day with plenty of spots for dispersed camping and it would be an ideal trail for snowmobiles where there is a large staging area at Waypoint 2
