Noon Creek Ridge Trail

Does anyone know if the Condition of the Noon Creek Ridge Trail in the Pinaleno Mountains. Is it still visible and how badly overgrown is it. Was planning an Arcadia Trail hike and was going to use this as a return trip.

I'm sure Elisha Reavis himself passes by this tree and it was probably large then

Re: Doll Baby TH to LF Ranch, River Route

The hard part is the climb up the hill and the shortcut doesn't eliminate that. The road is fairly easy walking and not much further than the shortcut but it is a road, I guess I would be interested in how easy is the short cut? Does it involve a lot of brush?

Re: Doll Baby TH to LF Ranch, River Route

Do a search on AZT 25. select the description for Whiterock Mesa -AZT 25. On the description page I have a hike listed as Doll Baby Ranch White Rock Mesa if you select that my trip log has the route. You can download that. I assume you are looking for the route between the Doll Baby road where it is...

@joebartels
I'm still trying to figure out what was wrong with the title the way it was. If I'm confused by a title at all, I check out the route.

Re: Dacite Super Loop - A Gross Mislabel?

Maybe it should Be Labeled "Dacite cliffs west of the Peralta Trail Head and southeast east of Superstition Peak Super Loop". Not sure what the limit Joe has on letters for a description title.

Re: Western Drought

I agree, droughts are usually a longer term cycle but they can have spurts of wet weather, only time will tell.

Re: Cathedral Rock (Catalina Mountains) BLACKED OUT!

I've heard it referred to the Black hole of the Catalinas. Maybe If you step into that area you could end up on some other mountain top somewhere.

Re: 8th Annual New Year's Day Peak Bag

Plan on hiking in Superstitions on Monday on the Peters Trail so since I am in the area this could be fun for a day after hike. What time do you start?

Re: Redflex Corruption

@hikeaz My father took the Tucson Traffic tickets for the stop lights to court because the for profit companies made up their own rules as to when you are running a red light. The for profit scum bags tried to tell him it was not a good idea to fight the ticket because the fine would be increased (...

Re: To hide, or not to hide?

Documenting and hiding is a good way to keep track of a daily routine. My wife use to think the 4 to 6 hundred miles I hiked each year was a lot but I showed her that the 3 miles a day she did with 200 AEG adds up to 1000 miles a year and 18,000 AEG.
