Hiked 4 miles in from the Cedar Breaks Park TH past Crockett Gardens. While Crockett Gardens was gorgeous and a great glimpse into history I was saddened to find that a large portion of the area, including where the springs flow out of the limestone cliffside and the old 3 walled structure, are fenced off and marked private property. The landowners have obstructed a large fence that causes a choke point on the trail. I'm absolutely dumbfounded that they would do this to prevent explorers from taking the whole area in especially since it's not easily accessible from the rest of their land due to a good size cliff wall. There was still much of the original structures that we could explore along with the falls. Highly recommend this trek to anyone who loves good views and history. Will return to explore further in the future. As always Id be happy to accompany fellow travelers, marksanderson23@icloud.com.
