This is the junction of the Skinner Ridge Trail with Pat Springs Camp. The oak on the right marks the trail to 4 camps. To the left is a campsite. Continuing straight ahead will lead you to the Pat Springs water cistern.
This is the trail to the western campsites on your right as you reach the intersection in the last picture. The oak on the left is the oak on the right in the last picture. This is NOT the trail to take.
This is the campsite on your. Walk into this campsite.
Once you are in this campsite, go around on the right side of the huge oak on the right of this picture. In the middle of this picture you can see the beginning of the Ventana Trail and a barely visible orange flagging of the trail on the tree on the left of the large oak.
Zoom in on this picture. As you approach the oak on the left you see the beginning of the Ventana Trail. It is currently (May 8, 2012) marked by two orange trail markers.
