[ft-l] Scout Trip

Personally, I prefer the Juniper area.  I think it's because
the terrain and vegatation is more varied.  From Juniper
Springs rec area to FS 10 makes a nice hike of about 8 miles
with camping at Hidden Pond (about the only water available
right now).  You can extend the hike by doing the Yearling
Trail up near the north end and see some evidence of 1900
homesteads and the sinkhole.
