Tom and I did this as an out and back as we explored north from where we left off the last week. It was a nice hike. While the AEG added up, it was gradual and did not wear us out. However, the mileage did make my feet hurt. The Hidden Treasure Mine was an interesting place to explore. Government Spring had plenty of water. The trail north from here is a little less clear than it has been up to this point. We found trail markers on Yavapai County 179 going to Cordes and also on a small two track going east from Government Spring, although the latter was quite old. According to a mountain biker forum it appears the trail passes the spring heading east. We'll need to check out whether it follows the two track or parallels it as a single track.

The length of this segment was 6.1 miles each way with AEGs of 750 going north and 650 going south.
