Ive got a buddy from the NW who Im planning on taking on a weekend trip around the first or second week of march. Im trying to come up with some good ideas for a backpacking route, but Im not really sure what to go with and was hoping you guys might be able to give me some good ideas
What Im looking for.......
0-4000ft : Elevation gain
Doesnt need to be on-trail I like unexplored canyons/etc, but a trail to start would be nice
he prefers to be in the forest, rather than the desert
So, what area/hike would be a good primer for someone who has never seen all the wonders of the AZ backcountry?
An adventure is merely an inconvience rightly considered

Do that Parson-Taylor Cabin Loop. The creek will be flowing, you'll get elevation, and there will be forest, or Arizona forest.

Highline Trail, eastern half. Loop back on the rim once you get to the spring.
Hike Arizona it is full of sharp, pointy, ankle-twisting, HAZmaster crushing
