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!

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
