1st trip
This was a really long day and you probably won't find me following this route again. There were a few nice areas to check out-- some good fall color show in a few locations. I encountered a bit more bushwacking than expected. It was good to see a bit of trail in the Mazzies I had not yet been on. Also saw the mine at the Saddle Mtn / Thicket intersection that I had not be aware of. I took a side trip left where Little Saddle Mtn merges onto the old jeep road (instead of staying right) to check out Upper Sheep Creek Spring. Not much to see there. Its pretty ugly getting there and there's a corral. Not really worth going to again. The trail section that connects Thicket Springs and Cornucopia on the south end is a total mess-- not fun.


Starting point: Cross F TH
Little Saddle Mountain (plus side trip down the old jeep road to Upper Sheep Creek Spring)--> Saddle Mountain --> Thicket Springs --> Cornucopia--> 25A --> jeep road above Sunflower Mine --> Saddle Mountain -->Little Saddle Mountain

I think all the trail names are correct. The signs don't seem to correspond 100% with my map.
