We drove in just over a mile from AZ 87 a few miles north of Clint's Well but were stopped short of the anticipated trail head by large boulders. Originally we hoped reach the western edge of the Blue Ridge Reservoir but with the extra distance on foot we just figured we'd hike until we felt like turning around. It got to be a bit old after a while due to absolutely no water in this section of the creek.

The few highlights turned out to be elk-related, one a not-quite-cleaned skeleton and a short video of a pair of elk. Since there had been a very hot fire through here not too long ago (maybe a few years?) we found many boulders that had split from the heat.

We did get rained on pretty steadily for 15-20 minutes as well as some heavy misting before and after the rain but we were prepared for it so it was kind of nice to hear the steady fall of rain on the trees.

Although I found this "trail" on an old map with nothing here on HAZ I just posted it as a generic hike.
