there are several hikes i've been wanting to do up near flagstaff
it would take me a couple of weeks to hit them all
asked angela if she would be interested in a bill williams/sycamore canyon rim combo for a weekend overnight and she agreed :)
we left north phoenix around 6:15 and were on the trail a little before 9:00 with clear skies, cool temps and fresh mountain air
hiked bill williams mountain 10-12 years ago but very little of the trail was familiar to me, which is odd, as i usually remember it once i see it again
there's a good initial ascent, then it levels out at times
only a couple of steep sections
the trail is well maintained
we focused on just getting up due to the possibility of storms, and had a snack where the trail meets the road
there's a little rock outcropping to the south of two benches that offers good views
from there we walked up the road to the summit, and the lookout let us come up to the tower
the views from there made the hike in my mind - who doesn't love a 360 view from a high point?
talked to jeff for a few minutes, then went back down to our rock outcropping for lunch
took our time heading down, as we could see we wouldn't be getting stormed on for awhile
opted for a trip to clover spring, which had a stagnant pool in the tank, then looped back to the BW trail
had pupus and a beverage at the trailhead before heading to flagstaff for the night
forgot to get times for this - angela?
