I agree with everything said.
Patton Cave does have it's own Trail head though. It's about equal distance between the Horse Camp, and the Fire Tower, but horses are horses and the rear ends usually end up on top, instead of behind.
There are other options available, but I kind of feel the same as Mule. Probably shouldn't rock the boat. Everyone had a fine time last year, and probably will no matter what site we end up using.
Although the fire trails that make up the Terrel Ridge Axsom and Sycamore branch trails are not very challenging or spectacular, there are probably plenty of day hike or slack pack opportunities, as long as one doesn't mind a little bushwhacking. Jones Hollow is one for sure. If you continue past Terrel Pond, and basically follow the drainage, that hollow takes you all the way to upper salt creek. Jones does too, just a little further upstream.
Several more opportunities also exist to the west from the Fire tower. Access to both Frank and John Grubb, for those so disposed.
Thanks Termite, I'll be taking you up on the ride back.
