Canyons are inherently risky. Flash floods occur without notice on sunny days. Technical skills & surrounding topography knowledge required yet does not eliminate risk.

To canyon trip
From Mesa take Highway 87 towards Payson. Turn on Highway 188 and drive to Punkin Center. From there take FR71 to Greenback Valley/Conway Ranch. Do not enter the private property of Conway ranch! Before FR71 enters the ranch site, turn left on FR236A. Follow FR236A around the private property to an old small wooden corral that is on left side of the road and park. On the south side of the road from the corral you will see a broken gate that accesses a narrow sand drainage heading through the brush. This drainage will take you to an ATV trail that heads around the eastern boundary of the ranch through the Greenback Valley area. On the south side of the private property you will see Red Blanket Peak, which is start of Panther Gulch. Note all signs marking the property boundary. Do not go through any gates with "No Trespassing" signs. (Special Note) The Conway family is friendly and have zero issues with people traveling around the boundaries of there ranch as long no one enters the well marked back property gates and do not damage any personal property. Heeding this warning will ensure many years of privileged access to a large remote area.
