Highline Trail

Post by ntl_hiking »

Does anyone know if there is water flowing between Bonita Creek and Horton on the highline?
Want to do 15mi into Horton and camp, then out in the morning and don't want to lug water the whole way if possible. I know Horton is flowing.
Thanks

yeah just kinda getting the pulse of anyone whos been there lately, ive only done horton creek as a day hike so not too familiar with the highline trail but would like to be. It seems like there's plenty of water at ellison, tonto and dicks, are they usually pretty reliable year round?
looks like there's a trail that comes in just east of Moore creek and then head east to horton for the night and out horton in the morning.

I can't confirm Ellison, but Tonto of course, and DW is always flowing.

Moore Creek is between two forest roads that go north from Control Road (FR 144 west or MC and FR31 east of MC) I drove part of 144 many years ago and it was rough and very rocky. I haven't driven 31 but I have seen ATVs on it.
