Detail Map of waypoint HP06
in Hockett Plateau:
(scroll down for directions, waypoints, and area map)
- HP06 is a standard box, at about 8500 feet,
in the GPS route HOCKETT PLATEAU.
- Note: You must cross stream to get to a large horse campsite from the trail.
The box and the camp are hard to see through trees and across stream,
but there is a horse-friendly ford and some downed trees I crossed near
the outlet of the meadow. This camp is just south of the signed trail
junction to Touhy River, but beware: that trail is not on the 7.5 quad
so don't take it if you intend to go to Hockett Lakes.
- Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, June 2001:
One standard box at the northwest (outlet) end of Southfork Meadow.
The box is southwest of the stream in the middle of the campsite.
- Directions from Mineral King ranger info sheet, dated 1991:
One box at the main stock camp on the west side of the river
near a large rock and visible hitch racks.
