Well, I probably have a new favorite hike in southern Arizona. This trail is just amazing. The wildlife, flowers, scented forest, cool temps.... :wink:

Saw a large coati by the trailhead. On the way in, what could only be a large wild turkey ran out of the brush and down the road alongside my car for about 100 feet before veering back off up a ridge. I almost bumped into a majestic gold eagle that was on some low rocks alongside the trail..this was a special treat. More lizards along the creek than I have ever seen (and I live in Tucson folks). Finally, the best wildflower display around.

Had to turn around at the Shingle Mills trail because of threatening weather. Ended up finishing in the rain.

A side trip to the summit of Webb Peak is very worthy of your time.

Final note of advice...wear long pants regardless of the temps. There is a lot of poison ivy along this trail.

What a day.

How To Put Out a Campfire
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.
