I'm interested in heading down in the sheephorn wilderness sometime in oct or nov.  The map i have shows cabin flat, mine gulch, and several fish fork camps.  I can't find much info on these on the NF webpage, and says cabin flat is closed.  Are these open for backpacking, or I assume dispersed camping is allowed since it is national forest?  I'm assuming the creeks down there hold water all year as well?  If its rugged country, faint trail, off trail -  all the better.

thanks

I've camped in those areas a bunch and times before. Cant say if there are permits. Cabin flat is nice, big, open. Mine gulch has a beautiful view of Mine Gulch and Baden Powell's east face. Water there, too. I like that place a lot. The Fish Fork camps are basic. The higher one was tiny, and the lower one along Fish Fork is big enough for a dozen people. Love that one. That's a special place to me.

Fish Fork and East Fork run all the time. Cabin Flat has a spring nearby which I've visited twice, so I don't know if it goes dry.
