New to the list. I'm camping at Ramsey Vista tonight, and was wondering what the directions are to the flame colored Tanager of you hike in from RVCG?
I have never hiked in from Ramsey Canyon, so I have no idea which crossover of the stream it is? Also, is it on an off-shoot trail or can it be seen from the main trail?
I will be hiking in the short way - NOT crest trail, but the comfort spring trail.
I aim to hike in at dawn if the weather permits.
Thanks in advance for the directions.
