SUICIDEKING
After reading recent triplogs, I wanted to go back to this trail to see how the new maintenance looks. Last time I hiked this almost 6 years ago, it disappeared at the 4 mile mark. This time it looked like it might do it again, but after the drainage/ravine, we found the trail. After that point, the trail was there but faint in spots, requiring some route finding. This time we made it 1.5 miles past how far I got last time. At that point, Mike's ankle was bothering him, so it was best to call it a day and turn back. Also, the trail ascended high above Deer Creek and became very narrow and loose in spots. the combo of this and Mike's ankle made him a bit nervous, so it was best to avoid the potential for injury and a longer day than we had planned.

Saw a few other hikers along this trail. Two solo hikers farther up, the rest were groups or families near the trailhead. The first hiker noticed my HikeArizona.com t-shirt and had nothing but good things to say about the site. The 2nd solo hiker was in the wash while were on the trail. We gave some directions to him to find the trail and headed along our way.

the Cowan grave appears to have had a lot of work done to it. So much in fact, that I don't remember seeing it at all 6 years ago. :-k

Weather was a bit chilly in the morning but warmed up once the sun hit. Very clear skies and air, making for nice views into the afternoon.
