I did this hike 14 years ago. Day trips back then were tiny hikes. After an out of town hike I would typically explore other parts of the area such as forest roads or little towns.

Here is what I remember. Cure curiosity and never go back. Near death experience crossing Verde. Creepy old naked people in dark corners.

We did this after a decent sized 14 mile loop over at Fossil. While it didn't intrigue me in the least bit going in it was a good opportunity in retrospect. Any hike is a good hike. The Verde was maybe two feet deep at worst. It wasn't cold. No scary swifts. Just pleasant.

The bonus was having Bruce piece together several puzzle pieces I've collected to memory over the years. We stopped and read three interpretive signs on the drive out. I sort of get it now. The flumes, the pipes, Stehr Lake and why it's gone.

Another coolness is understanding the location of the Hot Springs. Basically it's the end of Dugas Road! I know this Alaskan dude that drove it too!
