Thimble Point #417

  

The Thimble Point Trail #417 is relatively flat and rocky, with a lot of the area comprised of open meadow and sage/oakbrush  interspersed with stands of ponderosa pine.  There are attractive areas for dispersed camping around the ponderosa pine stands, especially beyond the fence at 2.5 miles.  The Thimble Point Trail intersects Hungry Gulch Trail #665 and the Wildcat Trail #640 forks off here beyond the fence on the right.  There are no opportunities for fishing.  The trail ends in a brushy area at Thimble Point Knoll.  A scenic overlook is available by hiking about one-quarter mile beyond the end of the two-track.
