Day 4 – Crescent Bridge MSC & 2SC

For my fourth hike, I headed out for a solo adventure deep in the Grapevine Mountains to visit Crescent Bridge Main Side Canyon and 2nd Side Canyon.  Crescent Bridge MSC had been previously documented in another report and I liked what I saw, thus I wanted to go see the beautiful white cliffs and false natural bridges for myself.  It definitely proved to be a great canyon, even better than what I was expecting.  After fully hiking up CB MSC, I looped over the ridge and came back down through CB 2nd Side Canyon.  The 2SC had never before been documented, but after hiking it I can now see why and will explain that in my upcoming report.  I was able to hike the entire length of CB 2SC from end to beginning and it really had some great narrows.  Since CB 2SC has never been seen before, I will share a few pictures of it below.  The hike ended with a return visit to Crescent Bridge itself, which is one of the most spectacular natural features in the entire park.
