After a long layoff from the AZT, the four of us were itching to get back to it.

We were under time constraints, needing to be back in the Valley by 5pm today, so we made the long drive down to do a littler jaunt.

Note to those doing this hike, the Northern TH is NOT accessible with a car. We were able to get within about .2 mile, so that was close enough for us and we hiked the rest.

This was probably my least favorite of all the passages we have done so far. The highlight of this trip was the forests of Ocotillo cactus. It was the highest concentration of them I have seen on a hike. A good sign for cave hunters.

Without a doubt, this was the easiest passage to follow, and in the best shape.

The trail is finished after the gate leaving the Coronado National forest. All other GPS tracks on site, prior to the one I will file, show the old temporary route. My mileage posted for this trip includes some "Extra" hiking. I will clean up my track and post the official route when I get a chance. AEG out of DemSync was 1,836'. I'm using AEG from TOPO! 1,367'

Denny/Dave thanks for driving.... Missed you on this one Nick.
