This is similar to what I was thinking, but shuttling means I couldn't go solo. Plan B was to take a two nighter, hike from Santa Paula Canyon to Lady Bug Camp, day hike to Willet the next day for a soak, and back to LBC, then back out the next day. I PMed Nick B., and got a little discouraged.
1) The Santa Paula Canyon to the Punchbowls are pretty trashed by idiots.
2)The trail between Last Chance and Jackson Falls might be iffy / overgrown (no biggie, IMO)
3) There have been a ton of car break ins at the Santa Paula Canyon trailhead.
I don't mind the faint trails/bushwhacking, and I am (unfortunately) used to see jerk offs trashing pretty areas, but I really don't want to stress about my car for 2-3 days. His other routes have possibilities, but I haven't had a chance to really look at them yet.
