Re: Moody Point Access

@GeeEss I’ve done what you are talking about. An old overgrown road bed will take you to the bottom of Deep Creek, where you cross and just pick the path of least resistance to the ridgeline. I have also taken the trail. It looks like it took me six hours RT via trail. I could probably do the short...

Re: Blue Range Primitive Area - Linking Dutch Blue Creek with Bear Mtn

@wildwesthikes I meant Strayhorse Trail for a route to river not Sawmill, I tried using Stray Horse to reach the river awhile back, but turned around because it was hot and had my dogs with me..Here is a triplog that has far more detail than what is needed. https://hikearizona.com/photoset.php?ID=4...

Re: Blue Range Primitive Area - Linking Dutch Blue Creek with Bear Mtn

@wildwesthikes I would not delay the trip for the sake of waiting on trail maintenance as suggested. KP and Grant are not getting cleared with any type of consistency lately and I would not expect that to be any different this year. KP will most likely get a summer clearing of some type down to the...

Re: What's Your Favorite Color

@joebartels Eh all fair points I suppose, maybe just solve all those problems and ax the forum portion on the web page entirely :o I mean Nothing overly substantive is ever really gained from the the forum. Most common question usually seems to be someone new to hiking or backpacking asking about w...

Re: What's Your Favorite Color

@Pivo
Really? What's value of this question? Someone deeply needs some sort of distraction. Most likely, looking for attention.
I am still trying to figure this one out too. I have to go through a moderator to post, yet somehow ths thread exists on HAZ? :?

Re: 4 day backpack on east side of Mazatzals

@eaufdembrink I would out and back from Barnhardt via Mazzies Divide AKA AZT to Horse Camp, maybe camp C. Spring area, then Horse Camp, then maybe a Y Bar return, side trip maybe Bear Springs, look at those areas and find a creative way to make that work for four days. I would strongly suggest avoi...

@outdoor_lover Eh no worries about whining comment, I just have found out that I have prob spent more time than what was needed worrying about how other people act ethically in the wild...I’m not the wilderness police, if FS had ticketed that group I would have been ok with that too.

Re: Permit Notification trick when the permit is late

@Al_HikesAZ I have never hiked Lava Falls Trail before. I don't think anyone has hiked it at my age. Wish me luck A family of 8 tried it yesterday with a ten year old in tow, volunteer ranger warned them that it might be a little aggressive. They said, "don't worry we will be fine, we are local."

Re: Outdoor Ethics

@wildwesthikes Honestly, I feel I just have evolved some on this topic. I used to rant too, I berated geo taggers on IG etc, took part in public shaming etc. But I have grown to realize that the only person’s wilderness ethics I can control are my own. People will do what they want no matter the la...

Re: Outdoor Ethics

@outdoor_lover I am just pointing out that I am not overly concerned about a school trip to Hackberry Springs, that spring sees 100s of visitors daily most likely on busy weekends, boy scout troops etc. I think it is a jump to say that the leader of that group allowed 30 kids to piss in the spring....
