Headed out and accomplished my task at hand to connect all the missing links.

Found a sweet outcrop overlook before the hike.

Turkey Trail is a mess with debris and foliage clutter. It's difficult to follow in places. Unlike it's nearby cousin West Webber this trail is totally exposed in the upper half. It's iron laden sandstone is more reminiscent of Sedona than Payson. The distant views are unmatched by any other nearby trail.

Finally figured out West Webber. Now I know what Hank was talking about in difficult to follow. I got off track twice. Although I knew I was off track I continued just to explore the area then turned back. Once it paid off well finding a spring not on the map. It has obviously been used for a very long time from an old sign I found. Then again, where it intersects with the creek seems oddly new looking? Hope somebody knows the story behind all this and can shed some light. With all the babble about Turkey Spring this one proved more worthy. Almost wonder if somebody tapped into Turkey Springs supply as it was more of a drip.

Actual loop mileage is 5.15mi, I "explored" :wink: some.
This is such a cool area, I can't get enough!
