Inner beauty...

Saturday afternoon, I returned to Wood Canyon for a nice mountain bike ride with a little bit of off-trail hiking. I parked near Highway 177 and rode the entire jeep trail along Wood Canyon to the upper spring. This is a superb mountain bike ride. The canyon is gorgeous and the ride is very balanced. Not too rough and not too easy, with some nice up and down section to catch your wind.

I truly can't emphasize how special this place is. The canyon literally glows during the late afternoon hours. It's a photographers dream. Returning back from the upper spring in the late evening will reward you with one of the most memorable and enjoyable walks you'll ever take. Wood Canyon and its surrounding ridgelines are a hikers playground. The off-trail opportunities are nearly endless. There is sooo much cool stuff to explore around this area. Everything from Gila River and north, including The Spine, Walnut Canyon, White Canyon Wilderness, The Rincon, and Wood Canyon, are some of the best-kept secrets this state has to offer.
