The boys and I went on a long trek I've wanted to make for some time. According to the map, one can travel north from McKenzie Ridge off of highway 180 through to the Kings River via Davis Road. Yesterday afternoon the boys and I took off.
The road was well maintained and easily navigated, but rocky enough in places to slow us down. It's incredibly dry--Mill Creek is completely dry. Still lots of great views and lovely terrain.
I wanted to try the Rancheria spur from the Crabtree area, but missed the turn. That was okay because the boys were getting tired of riding and ready to jump in the river.
We got to the River and the boys had a great time. I discovered a forest service cabin at camp 4 1/2 available for rent. Since this was the best place for swimming in the area, we will definitely come back.
