Of the thirteen published Tonto NF hiking trails in our Sierra Ancha Wilderness this one is on my top three list. I prefer starting this hike from the alternate TH at Cienega Spring TR145 and then connecting with the hike writeup McFadden Horse TR146 after a scenic (with nice views of the Reynolds Creek Drainage area) and historic (opportunity to view six 19th century uranium mine adits) on this 2.4ml one way Trail#145 to its intersection with TR#146.

This is my third hike here since August'07, and my first time with a camera to finally capture the awesome diversity, ruins history, and beauty of this area and hike.

The McFadden Horse Trail ending bluff viewpoints (7160 ft) at the awesome "Elephant Rock" with its rugged near and distant views far below of the Cherry Creek Drainage and its ~700 year old views of the now crumbling "Salado Fortress" on top is always a real highlight.

On the drive back, I also discovered that there is more than Mexican Food in Globe. My now very convenient (SE corner of Hwy60/Hwy188) and excellent (food, menu, prices, & service) dinner stop in Globe is "Judy's Cook House" --> igallery/image_page.php?id=4401 :D
