My goal was to explore the Cottonwood basin/find the Sandstone spring and see if I could connect to the Log Corral trail. I started out at the Mesquite Wash exit off the bee-line. The 1st three Sycamore creek crossings were deeper than usual but cross-able. The fourth crossing was about 2 feet deep and 100 feet wide. I didn't have my water shoes, so improvised Plan B.

I've always wondered about the Great West Trail across the beeline from the Mesquite wash, so I crossed under the overpass and made my way to FR11. I took FR11 to the north where it ended at the Dos S Ranch. The ranch is private property and was recently for sale. I headed back on FR11 to the Four Peaks road and went up to the Ballantine Connector trail.

It was a fun to explore in a new area.
