Re: Missing hiker in the Mazatzals

Seeing how I met him on the trail the day he got lost I can chime in and say there was about a zero percent chance he would make it out on time. Very nice guy though.

Re: Missing hiker in the Mazatzals

He was a little over 2 miles in from Mormon Grove Trailhead Parking area. About .25 mile north of Potato Patch. Talked with Search and Rescue this morning.

Re: Missing hiker in the Mazatzals

I believe I met him yesterday on the trail. I have called Gila County Sheriff and gave them the info I had. Seems like a great guy. Praying for the best. :(

Re: Bears In The News

I almost always hike and camp with a dog or dogs. Never had a bear problem even though I know they have been in the area. I also take pepper spray as added precaution.

Re: do wildfires cause springs to dry up

I hiked to Hopi Spring just a year after the Willow Fire in the Mazatzals. The area was nearly moonscape but the spring still flowing in late June but the water was undrinkable. Casterson Seep seemed unaffected by the fire.

Re: Winter camping

@Ampaz
Most campgrounds are closed this time of year but the private campground in Payson maybe open. Sedona, Prescott, Globe, Tucson, county campgrounds, Maricopa County Campgrounds, Lake Havasu area.

Re: Ideas for early November backpacking trip

@LARichardson73
Bear Spring, Barnhardt Canyon, Deer Creek and Horse Camp Seep tend to be reliable in the Mazatzals but by Novevember temps may be in the 20's overnight.

Re: mazatzals - Saddle Mtn to Plateau Pt.

I'm not sure the forecast for Peeley is very accurate most hiking up in the mazzys esp northern slopes tends to be 20-30 degrees cooler than the valley
