A preliminary "scouting mission" planning a complete shuttle hike in the near future. I've learned the location of a cliff dwelling along this route and plan to explore these ruins...

Explored the west TH off of FR487 with my daughter Hannah as part of a hike up Aztec Peak. We've previously explored the east TH near Leisure Canyon off of FR203 in Cherry Creek valley. Reference the Sierra Ancha Wilderness map online at the following link;

Logistics for this future hike may prove "challenging". Although the Tonto National Forest Service lists this hike as being 9.5 miles long, there is an additional 3.5 miles to be navigated along FR487 to the road closure barricade. Also to be considered is the shuttle distance the vehicles will have to negotiate between trail heads.

FR487 vehicle travel = 2.5 miles
Hwy 288 vehicle travel = 18 miles
FR203 vehicle travel = 18 miles
TOTAL SHUTTLE DISTANCE = 38.5 miles

Suspect this shuttle distance will take at least 2 hours to navigate between trail heads. Would like to hear from anyone who has recently completed this shuttle hike!

Finally a Great Hiking App This is a must have for the avid or even beginning hiker. Easy to set up and use. The Topo maps and the ability to download a track prior to hiking, will ensure I get out of the Wilderness OK. If I set my phone to Airplane Mode, (GPS On) I've gone 13 hours with battery to spare. Recent upgrades have made this very user friendly for both the occasional Hiker/Walker to the All Day Hikers. Lots of Stats available to keep track of what you are doing.
