I decided to get out of town to cooler climes. This is a nice stroll in Rim Country.

Some isolated fall color but nothing to write home about. Most of the trees and shrubs are nondeciduous. Some Gambel Oak and Sumac added a little red. Some aspen added yellow but they were past their prime.

This trail could be great, but needs some trail maintenance by Coconino National Forest. About 2 dozen downed trees which had to be climbed over or crawled under and created some trail finding issues in a couple of places. Brand new signs have been installed as part of an Eagle Scout Project. Beautiful views and well designed switchbacks. Some erosion in the switchbacks.

With trail maintenance this could be a 4. In its current condition it might barely be a 3.

At about 1.5 miles, the Stradling Canyon enters Pine Canyon. At 1.67 miles the Cinch Hook Trail enters. I did not take the time today to explore. Does anybody know if they go up to the Rim?

Parsnip Spring was flowing nicely.

I don't know why my AEG is so far off.
