Sourdough Creek looked good next to the trailhead, so when I returned from the Diablo Lake trail and found a signpost for Sourdough Creek trail, I took that trail. That was also a mistake.
I camped at the Colonial Creek Campgound four miles up the Highway. After setting up camp, I hiked the Thunder Woods Nature trail on the Thunder Creek trail. This trail was much more interesting than the two trails at Gorge Lake. There are some blowdowns on this trail, but clearing them is not difficult.
