This is one passage I've been needing to do, and figured it was a great way to check out a new sock/shoe combo that's aimed at addressing foot issues I've been having on long, flat hikes.

It's a lovely walk, though I can certainly see why its more popular with cyclists. Its just that kind of long walk through the desert. Even on a weekday, I saw 8-10 cyclists out there, and only one other group of hikers (who were with a recreation group for disabled adults).

I did have one thought as I walked toward the Rincons across that amazing valley... If you've come to AZ from far away and believe it's essentially flat, then the Huachucas would have been your first surprise. THESE mountains, though, with their sheer mass and unavoidable flank would be pretty intimidating. The uninitiated might even think "What the pumpkin did I get myself into?"

Love it!
