Pinalenos received it's first snow fall of winter 2 days before, I wanted to make a snowman and chose Gibson Canyon to get me up in the snow zone. Hiked up Gibson, hung a left onto the Round the Mountain trail and followed it to the Gibson creek crossing making this my turn around destination. I hit 5600 elevation with the snow level still well above this mark and decided to cancel my snowman plans ..... from town the snow level looked much lower than what it was. Instead, I hiked down into the Gibson Canyon gorge for an hour and enjoyed the spectacular series of waterfalls that run down this canyon! The lower grassland section on the way back down was equality as scenic in it's winter colors.
Good hike, trail is in great shape, but forest road 57 in needs some work ..... high clearance only now IMO.
:D
