1st trip
Chris Forsyth, leader of the GCHBA Service Project took me up this historic trail that takes off from the first ravine west of the Silver Bridge on the River Trail. It was really fun to be off the beaten path and much of the trail tread still remains. I was happy I was going up and not down it because there is a lot of steep loose rock sections. It took us about an hour and a half to get to the Miner's Cairn at the Tonto level, then a quick bushwhack over to the Tonto Trail, which we took to the Tipoff and hiked the South Kaibab down. It was interesting on our hike out the South Kaibab the next day to look down and be able to see some of the route.
