Roger's Birthday this week and he wanted to revisit BSM Hidden Valley, guess he didn't remember reading Joe and Eagle's BTM BSM Hidden Valley Loop Hell, AZ. :scared: :o Most direct route was Dutchman to Bull Pass Saddle and then across the Lost Bull Pass Trail and ending at the Intersection of Dutchman and the start of Bluff Spring Mountain Wash. Plenty of fresh water at this intersection and up the Wash for aways, to filter and replenish your water supply.
The work really begins as you head out of the wash along the left side, the over growth has just compounded itself from 4 years ago and the route is the path of least resistance. We stayed to the left and worked ](*,) our way up to the cliffs facing you and around through the Portal signaling the route up to Magill's Camping Ledge Overhang. Interesting thread concerning the Lost Dutchman's Mine and how Barry Storm might have influenced Glen Magill's thoughts as to the location. thelostdutchmangold ... t=69 Spent some time exploring near the Ledge and waterfalls, but didn't find anything that we hadn't found before :( Headed back down on the left side of the wash this time. Remember 80 % of BSM Wash to the Aqua Falls is off trail through heavy brush and steep sides. :wlift: :-k before you tackle this destination. Take plenty of water, you will break into a sweat. Hopefully Birthday Boy will not want a repeat for his next Birthday.

Enough flowing water to filter and replenish your water supply. Please check before head out for any current water sources, getting HOT out there.
