Re: February Backpacking

@keepmoving Are you available weekdays? The western Superstitions can be a little bit busy on weekends this time of year, though if you get a few miles out it's generally a lot more peaceful. You can't go wrong with this Marsh Valley campsite in February! https://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=747573

Happened to me at my Marsh Valley campsite a couple of years ago, except it was super quiet. It was out of rock throwing range.

As a matter of fact, I think Chumley first told me about this spot in Willow Springs Canyon?

Re: Camping this weekend or next week

@Ampaz Try lower West Clear Creek Trail #17 Bullpen access. Hike upstream as far as you like. Creek side camps, waterfalls, trout, easy access no need 4X4, and lots of trip logs to help you out. Dog will love it. Probably 10 degrees warmer than above the rim destinations this weekend.

Re: Hydration - Water isn't the best

@outdoor_lover Caffeine! 5 or 6 on the list are typically high in caffeine. Chumley did say at the beginning this came from CNN.

Re: Hiking with dogs

@LindaAnn That seems ridiculous? Perhaps just another example of the evolution of human laziness. You know, lights that turn on when you walk in the room, fast food delivered to your house, keyboards that predict your next keystroke, etc... Might as well just stay home and a watch a you tube video ...

Re: 44? Hikers Rescued from Lost Dutchman State Park Overnight

@chumley I was on the Mormon trail Saturday morning and on the way back down a heard a lady go off on another lady for short-cutting the trail. I thought maybe she was employed by the FS. Another hiker defended the woman saying the trail has many splinters and it's hard to tell which is the actual ...

Another source says they were all the same group from Kansas. Several of them tried clicking their heels together 3 times, but nothing happened, so they called for rescue.

Re: Cabin Loop - U-Bar now closed. 2-day backpack alternatives?

@chumley
I wonder what they consider to be the Cragin watershed? Seems like most of the U-Bar would drain east of the reservoir, into Barbershop/Dane, entering ECC below Cragin.
Or is it just all the same because it's close?

CC Cragin vehicle limit

Hello,
Has anyone been to CC Cragin and been turned away? I didn't think there was room for 45 vehicles to park there anyway. Probably not an issue if you show up early in the day. Will FEES be next?

Re: Proposed fee changes for Mogollon Rim campgrounds

None of those changes are going to cost me a dime, and probably the same for most HAZ people?
But up to $20 for a nice single campsite is fair, if that's your game.

Re: Directions are Unclear Please Help

@nonot
Mountain bikes can be fun in this area too. I think driving in from 87 to 142 is a not as rough as coming in from 260 to 144/149? 149 is usually terrible.
