- HP09 is 6 large boxes with no latches, at about 6000 feet,
in the GPS route HOCKETT PLATEAU.
- Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, June 2001:
The Hidden Falls Campground is the trailhead for the River Trail,
which goes up the Tule River to the Hockett Plateau. This trail is
shorter than the West Side Trail from Shake Camp, and the campground
is more developed. Six large boxes are at the campsites, and they
have provisions for padlocks but no latching clips. We saw unlocked
boxes with food inside and no apparent bear or rodent problems.
