"Hike down Duck Creek to the confluence with Ashley Creek. From the confluence hike north up the Reese sidehill to your destination."

Boy that approach sounds really simple, doesn't it?!

Just so everyone knows, this approach is a serious endeavor. Over 3 miles each way of total bushwacking in and out of the creekbed and surrounding thorn bushes, etc. Plan on 2.5 hours each way, especially your first time.
