This was my first completely "off trail-route finding" loop hike in Arizona that in my humble opinion rates a strong HAZ "5"..IT DOES ROCK!!

If you enjoy off trail, remote hiking with manageable bushwhacking, sweeping near and distant 360 degree views(hiking elevations of 2800' to 4070'), interesting rock formations, old ranching history, and you are experienced with reading topo maps, and/or GPS route finding with assigned waypoints or you can follow our loaded HAZ GPS Hiking Route, then you will safely enjoy this one! Located south of Superior and north of the White Canyon Wilderness, this Wood Canyon area is close enough to our Phoenix and Tucson area to make it a great choice for a late fall to mid spring hiking trip.

I normally take less than 100 pics on a much longer mileage day outing than this one. Due to the scenic value of this hike, I returned with 128 pics. After editing out, I ended up with 59 for my personal file and posted 38 of 59 on HAZ which I felt were needed to adequately show the enjoyment story of this loop hike. Please see my pic set and detailed pic captions which try to "walk-you-through" our day in this most enjoyable area.

My personal T-hank-S to Eric for doing a great pre-planning job and for leading this fun, challenging, and rewarding hike in an area that few ever experience.
