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.
