Excellent hike to a beautiful canyon of rock formations straight out of Disney World. It's a little longer than I normally like, but we had a great group and excellent weather. The trail is in pretty good shape and easy to follow. Just go north of Klondyke and park off the road at a corner where the road turns directly west toward Arivaipa east. The trail is much easier to find than when we were here a few years back, probably because of the increased traffic on the Grand Enchantment Trail Segment #8, of which it is a part. The only tricky part is to make sure you go just past Reef Tank and find the nice path that goes directly east. There is a few feet of water in Reef Tank, but I hope you don't have to drink it. Highly recommend this hike, but it's a bit difficult to get to from ANYWHERE! Long way in from Willcox (~30 miles) or Pima (35 miles), both gravel roads in good shape.
