Trail Quest: East & West Fork Lion Falls

Hiked to East & West Fork Lion Falls in the Thomas Fire burn area recently. Lots of wildflowers out there including Humboldt lilies. Not a whole lot of shade, but decent water at both East & West Fork Lion Falls, as well as Rose Valley Falls. The trail is in good shape, no downed trees or substantial ravel across the tread. Both East & West Fork Lion Camps are usable, but again not much shade.
