From the trailhead, you enter the Sespe Wilderness. Hike 2.5 miles north to the Bucksnort Junction. Continue west one mile to reach Cow Spring Camp. Water is usually only available here during winter and spring. Continue 3.2 miles down to Alder Creek Camp. The trail below Dripping Springs becomes narrow and sections of the tread have been destroyed from winter flooding. There are two campsites separated by the creek crossing.
