Re: Lime Creek 51 Ranch - Horseshoe

@whereveriroam We will be coming from the 51 Ranch to Horseshoe. Is the bypass marked on both sides?

@whereveriroam
From the lake to the cabin is 8.5? How much water is there? Up to the knees? up to the waist? How much of the creek gets bypassed?

Thanks

We will be hiking through. 51 Ranch - Lime Creek Cabin, stay a night and then down to Horseshoe the next day. We will have someone pick us up at Horseshoe.

Re: Lime Creek 51 Ranch - Horseshoe

@Hansenaz
Yeah, we came to that conclusion already. Especially if it really is 13 miles like Chumley said. The cabin seems like a good spot to stay the night. It should be a good hike. I am excited to explore Lime.

Lime Creek 51 Ranch - Horseshoe

Re: Hiking pain and pill popping

I use to use Ibuprofen frequently. Now, only when inflammation gets real bad. A recent medical issue has made me change my lifestyle a bit. I can't say I stick to it strictly, but I eat healthier, stopped drinking for the most part (though I did just get some beer for a upcoming river trip) and hike...

Hiking partner/s wanted (Chalk Canyon)

I am thinking of hiking to Chalk Canyon tomorrow to see the ruins and petroglyphs. This will be my first hike out there and would like a hiking partner. Preferably someone who has been there before, but anyone is welcome to come. $3 fee to enter Spur Cross.

It's nice to have a reason to come back. Unfinished business has always been a great inspiration to me.
Yeah, we will return to do the whole EM loop soon. It will probably kick my ass the first time, but that's ok.

Re: Trail to the trunk of Elephant Butte?

So we decided not to summit Elephant Mountain yet. Today we started at the Spur Cross trail head and took that till we reached the second intersection with the Tortuga loop. Then we took Tortuga until we reached the Elephant Mountain trail and followed it for a ways before turning back somewhere jus...

Re: Trail to the trunk of Elephant Butte?

Yeah, I think that's it. I guess it is Elephant Mountain, not Butte. Is there a description for it?

Trail to the trunk of Elephant Butte?

Trying to find the description for a trail that leads to the trunk of Elephant Butte, but I am not having luck. My Mother hiked it years ago so I am only getting a vague description, but it starts near the beginning of the Spur Cross Conservation area and heads North West toward the nose of Elephant...
