Did a great extended loop hike for a total of 13.6 miles. Headed up to Pine mountain via Willow Springs - Pine Mountain Trail and the headed past the return for the 9 miles loop out along Verde Rim Trail closing the loop via Bishop Creek. Some route finding to get to Bishop Creek from Verde Rim trail ( Great views along this stretch) and then working your way up through a lot of down fall from the fires in Bishop Creek. Fall color was past peak in the area. Enjoyed the time we rested on the summit of Pin Mountain - Great views
We stayed at the Sycamore Cabin on Halloween night!
