I was going to visit another HS but fire related hwy closures steered me towards DC.
I arrived at the ranch at 12:00. There were 7 cars there. I encountered 2 single guys and 1 couple leaving the springs. It was raining decently at the ranch and first half of the trail. It took me 1.5 to get down to the springs. I collected 2.5 bags of trash on the trail where I could reach. I hanged one on the gate and somebody took it. I am very grateful for your help. The springs were not very crowded – may be 15 people all together. I picked up 6 bags of trash and re-bagged some from the huge pile by the sign. I did not plan on coming to DCHS so I did not bring many bags. I used them all but I only cleaned up the upstream area adjacent to the creek. I did not venture down the stream and I did not spend any time at the beach area on Bowen ranch side of the creek. There is a bunch of crap there as well. So, if you plan on coming down, please bring some heavy duty contractors grade baggies. There is a bunch of broken chairs, tents, coolers and various drek. My legs were cramping on the way down, so I waited for sun to come down to hike up. I carried one 30lbs bag I hid half way on the trail. I am calling on all visitors to bring some bags and carry a bit extra to help the springs.

P.S. Wizard, it was a pleasure seeing you again.
