This is a hike I've been wanting to do for 2 years and 2 days now. Since summer seems just around the corner, I figured today would probably be my last opportunity until fall. The trail head is 6.3 miles east of I-17 on Table Mesa road. You can see a "road" on Google Earth that zig-zags it's way from Table Mesa road up to the western portion of New River Mesa. Well, what at one time may have been a road is now just a steep, rocky, washed out remnant. It climbs 600 feet in 1/2 miles, and if I didn't mention, it's steep and rocky! Once on top, I followed the rim in a counter-clockwise direction. There's no trail at all on the top, I just followed game trails and worked my way around piles of rocks and between the prickly pear cactus. Biggest excitement for the day was running into 7 deer. If you continue east on New River Mesa, you can hook up with NF17 and/or Black Mesa trail to Spur Cross. Going back down the hill was WAY worse than coming up!
