From Trailhead at Hi Mountain Road the trail meanders along Trout Creek which sometimes has water. It is a pleasant trail. It then leaves the canyon bottom at an unsigned junction and climbs through rolling hills to Buckeye Campsite. There is a small spring here with generally reliable water. Camping is tough if you follow the rule of never camping under an oak tree as the Campsite is within a pleasant oak grove. The T-C trail continues through rolling country to Stony Creek Meadow (Stony Creek is not reliable water, it may be dry) on private land, pass through this and ascend to Caldwell Mesa, 1300 feet gain in 2 miles. Can be hot, no water. Caldwell Mesa is a lovely tableland, on private land, no camping, can be over grazed. There is a spring which is unreliable. The trail continues, drops 600 feet to Stony Junction, there is usually reliable water in the small stream leading to Stony Creek. Good camping although not in an official FS campsite. This is the end of the trail. A right turn here will put you on the Stony Creek Trail which dead ends at private land in a couple of miles. No particular reason to use it. A left turn takes you down the Stony Creek trail to a dead end in a mile or so. Continuing straight across the small meadow, crossing Stony Creek puts you on the Avenales Guard Station Trail which is a scenic climb up over the ridge and down to the Guard Station which is also a dead end at private land. All of the Garcia Wilderness Trails are out and back trails with no other legal ingress or egress except the Trout Creek Trailhead.
