This hike is described in Tyler Williams book CANYONEERING ARIZONA.
We chose to start this hike at the trailhead from the end of FS # 142E.
Very steep descent to the canyon bottom , not really much of a trail.
At the creek , we headed upstream. There are some footpaths along the
creek, but we decided to make our way thru the water . Boulder hopping
and wading in ankle to waist deep water ... :) This part of the canyon
is so amazing... flowers, lush greenery, steep canyon walls . WOW it
was breathtaking ! Pictures could never show the beauty here.
Some pretty cool petroglyphs on river right just upstream from Tramway
Canyon.
I came one step short of stepping on a big coiled up black snake :o
EEEK that was very scary!
The hike back up was a bit treacherous, raining , very very slippery.
Willow Valley is upstream 3 miles from the entry point for this hike.

Warning: heat kills!
Avoid 8am to 5pm over 90 degrees. Prehydrate & stay hydrated.
Hikebot recommends using an umbrella to block the sun.
Avoid Heat Illness - do NOT hike when temps exceed 100 degrees, period.
