Trail and fol­low Rich­land Creek 1.3 miles to a junc­tion.

2 Veer east (hiker’s right) onto a set of steep switch­backs and con­tinue .7 mile on the main path to the

Hen­der­son Creek Camp­site . (At press time, the bridge over Lau­rel Creek near mile 1.8 was un­us­able; pre­pare to ford. It should be lower than knee height in Oc­to­ber.)
