For those of us who dwell in the Baja Arizona - that being south of the Gila River Valley / the Gadsden Purchase proper - the sections of the AZT that snake about our part of the state can be more than just thru routes or section hikes to complete the AZT. These are great day or afternoon hiking routes that usually allow for extended off-road access before embarking on a well removed hike.

Having lived in Santa Cruz county in the recent past, I am well aquainted to Temporal Gulch and its prominent views of Mt. Wrightson & Mining Artifacts. This is one of my favorite lower AEG hikes to just stretch-out a bit...I usually meander back on the well maintained dirt road to the camping site (which are many) found at the GPS routes beginning - where abundant shade is provided by Arizona Sycamores! Avg. Grade 31.4% - GPS Route Available.

Water evident acting much like a seep, pooling in the middle of the trail. Open range cattle accessing and defiling the source. Did NOT locate source origin.
