Dayhiked from San Francisquito Canyon Road (mile 478.5) to Lake Hughes Road (mile 486.5). Trail tread and corridor in great shape. Fresh mountain bike tracks miles 481-486. Picnic table and wooden cabinet with PCT emblem located 50 yards east of Lake Hughes Road appear relatively new. Water cache in cabinet mostly empty. Small population of native succulent Dudleya cymosa in limestone rocks near mile 485. Parking area large enough for 5 cars on Lake Hughes Road 100 yards N of PCT crossing. Parking on San Francisquito Canyon Road on raised road shoulder at PCT crossing or 275 yards south at Forest Service facility.
