Fall Colors along the Horton Creek Trail yesterday:

Directions to the parking area: Turn right (south) off Highway 38 about 6 miles past the Barton Flats Visitor Center on Forest Service Road 1N02. Follow 1N02 until it forks right to 1N05. Go right up 1N05 (this is a rough unmaintained road but passenger cars can slowly get to the parking area) to the signed Aspen Grove Trail parking (7,400'), 2.6 miles in from Highway 38.
The best part of the grove is found by heading right after you cross the creek the first time (if you go left you'll head toward the Fish Creek Trail). Just keep following the trails that run on either side of the creek and you'll run into a really nice section about 1/2 mile or so from the first creek crossing. There are some old beaver dams in that area too.
There's supposed to be another aspen grove in the Broom Flat area of the San Bernardino National Forest. Sometime I'm going to go look for that second aspen grove. Here's some info on it:
