Seeing the San Pedro river been on my list of things to see ever since I saw it from the AZT. This seemed like a good weekend to check it out. I started at the AZT trail-head off of Freeman road and headed down the AZT. The Beehive well is where the AZT and the GET go their separate ways. The GET follows the Putnam wash and takes a turn to the left(north) when it hits Camp Grant wash. The Putnam spring is puts out a good flow of water. I went poking around Camp Grant wash a bit.

When you see a train bridge you're near the river. At this point the GPS track from HAZ becomes important. You have to zig-zag around a fence line by going on South Camino Rio road and back into the wash. Now your right at the river. The San Pedro river looked more like a creek. I was able to cross without getting my feet wet. I saw a bunch of ATV's and horseback riders here. Now your in the flood plain of the river. The Aravaipa creek had water flowing in it. The GPS track helps guide you to out of this are and onto the Aravaipa road. There a lot of private property in this area and the GPS track helps you avoid it. I explored a bit before having lunch and returning.

This was a fun hike, but the wash can get annoying with the loose sand. I found if you hike to the extreme right or left , the ground was more solid. The weather turned out perfect. It almost got warm and the clouds came in and cooled things down
