I'm leaving Arizona's gray overcast rust belt in Flagstaff and heading to Tucson for a few days. I plan to access the southern end of Redfield Canyon in the Galiuro Wilderness. This is not the Redfield Canyon Wilderness, which is adjacent to the area I intend to visit but is separate. I see a trailhead on the Coronado NF FS map I printed from their web page, but we have no information on the area in the HAZ Trail Dex. It looks like FR 691 is Gamez Road on the Map we use for our street names. Has anyone had any experience in this area with trailhead access? We will be using my friends Outback, so we expect that as a forest service road he will have no issues. I see no known hikes on our DEX from this trailhead, so perhaps I will be writing up a description or two when I return, hopefully with information on access.
So, again, anyone have experience with the area or know much about access to the southern Galiuro Wilderness in the Redfield Canyon area?
This is the lat and long as given by the DEX at the trailhead location:
32.410032 N, -110.321267 W
I think Monsoon season will begin around June 20, plus or minus 5 days, not by the calendar according to the NWS, but when dew points rise dramatically, and it begins to rain over the Sacramento Mountains. It will start about 10 days later in Arizona.
