Looking for a new area to hike and decided to check out the Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area. Out with my wife on this beautiful day so I couldn't go to crazy. Plus, it was my first time in the area and I like to get a feel for my surroundings before I get to adventurous. It's about a mile in and a mile out. We went in on the Metate trail and come out on the Spur Crossing. Also did the Towhee spur. Beautiful area, huge saguaro!! Portions of Cave Creek were trickling. The water would be there, then it would go underground, and then it would be there again. Long drive to get here, but looking forward to coming back and doing more with the trails.
