    Took a walk down the FR and a little ways on both Peter's and JF trails to check out the burn in that area. Looks bad but not a bad as I thought although I suspect the deeper in you go it might look worse. Looks like the catclaw acacia is recovering very quickly which I was hoping that wouldn't be the case. Peter's Trail at the TH where it follows the creek for a bit is pretty much washed away with lots of debris and sludge to push through. JF Trail to the Hoolie Bacon junction is clear but washed out a bit. AM temps were great.

    JF Ranch Trail was technically the start of my HAZ life.

    I was doing a very unspectacular Tortilla to Angel Basin over-night and taking advantage of the MLK hoiday when I met two people at Angel Basin who encouraged me to join this thing called HAZ. To this day I can't remember their screen names or real names, however, I know they were doing some trail maintenance on Frog Tanks that day, camped at Angel Basin and it was a man and woman.

    Nevertheless, I went home created an account, probably made an ass of myself a few times on forum, went into lurking mode for several months and finally started posting in November.

    Oh I am also working on catching up my links, I want my red dot in Supes ;)

    Map Drive
    Strictly 4x4

    To Tortilla Trailhead
    From the junction of Idaho Road & SR-88 follow SR-88 23.0 miles east to FR-213.

    If you do not have 4x4 you will need to park here and hike 3.4 miles to the trailhead. Otherwise drive in. The first 0.25 mile section is the most difficult.

    The trailhead is not well defined. If you are hiking out on Peter's Trail #105 steer right(west) at the end to the old windmill and water tower. If you are hiking out on JF Trail #106 or Hoolie Bacon Trail #111 continue straight/right to the fence. JF Trail #106 takes off immediately. Hoolie #111 is 0.8 miles off of #106.

    From PHX (I-10 & AZ-51) 60.7 mi - about 1 hour 50 mins
    From TUC (Jct 1-10 & Grant) 154 mi - about 3 hours
    From FLG (Jct I-17 & I-40) 205 mi - about 4 hours
