I headed to the Pinelanos Saturday evening for a car camp and perhaps a couple good days of hiking. I used the old forum thread to find an off the beaten path car camping spot. There are several on forest road 4452 near the trailhead of Blair Canyon Trail. I brought enough supplies for two days and the plan was to just hike as many trails in the area as I could.

I woke up nice and early, but I was not very spry. I have been dealing with a little leg injury thing for a couple of weeks now and it was not feeling so great, plus it was impacting my lower back a little as well. I decided to just scale down some of my day hike options and just play the day by ear and work on completing some of the easier hikes on the Mt. Graham area completion list ;)

I new from the description that Blair Canyon was short due to trail being wiped out, it is a still pretty spot on description. The trail is alright for about a mile or so and then it simply disappears into a ridgeline of newly grown New Mexican Locusts, not worth a further bushwhack from what I saw. The trail is worth going down just to see some of the large firs, however, there are some annoying downfall areas that might make the trail not enjoyable for some.
