We drove in just over a mile from AZ 87 a few miles north of Clint's Well but were stopped short of the anticipated trail head by large boulders. Originally we hoped reach the western edge of the Blue Ridge Reservoir but with the extra distance on foot we just figured we'd hike until we felt like turning around. It got to be a bit old after a while due to absolutely no water in this section of the creek.
The few highlights turned out to be elk-related, one a not-quite-cleaned skeleton and a short video of a pair of elk. Since there had been a very hot fire through here not too long ago (maybe a few years?) we found many boulders that had split from the heat.
We did get rained on pretty steadily for 15-20 minutes as well as some heavy misting before and after the rain but we were prepared for it so it was kind of nice to hear the steady fall of rain on the trees.
Although I found this "trail" on an old map with nothing here on HAZ I just posted it as a generic hike.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
