Black River this Sunday July 7

Post by azbackpackr » Jul 05 2013 2:02 pm

I'm taking a run down to the Black River on Sunday, might like a bit of company. I'm not hiking far, no more than 6-8 miles round trip. I'll be going downstream from Wildcat Bridge. You'll get your feet wet. I generally wear old boots, old shoes, or Tevas with neoprene socks--I don't change my shoes at each crossing, I just keep hiking. I'll be scouting for campsites and swimming holes for an upcoming backpack trip. I'll be leaving Eagar pretty early in the morning.

I should have posted this sooner. There's still time, but you would have to drive up this afternoon, at the latest. Unless you leave Phoenix at 3 a.m. on Sunday...

That's what Joe and the boys had done when we saw them up on Baldy. (Which is a shorter drive, but a longer hike.)

Yes we do! We hike, as often as possible. The rest of it is so forgettable...

@azbackpackr do you happen to know if the tribes (San Carlos, Fort Apache, etc.) issue permits to off-trail hike to the confluence of the White and Black?

Hi, sorry, I really don't know. I always stayed on the National Forest end of the Black River. I wouldn't be surprised if they did though.

If it were me, I'd get both. For Apache, get the Special Use permit that applies to black/salt river.

Yup, I have a few experiences with getting those, they seem to be pretty liberal about where and what you can do once you pay them...White Mountain permit did however come with a guide showing forbidden areas, so maybe double check that...
