Thumper Loop is another hike in the Boots and Burgers book. The hike is in the Dead Horse State Park. It makes a loop out of sections of Lime Kiln, Thumper , and Lower Raptor Trail. Haz doesn't have all of these trails listed yet. They are in the Dead Horse Trail System. The trails on this loop are hiker and mountain biker friendly. Maybe a couple rough spots for a beginner mountain biker like me but would be easy enough to walk that part. a nice variety of vegetation. Some grassy fields, Cresote fields, lots of Prickly Pear, Juniper, and Crucifix. My first time in this exact area and it seems the possibilities of lots of little adventures are good.
Camping,fishing, HIKING, mountain biking, and Cottonwood, Clarkedale, Jerome, Sedona all close by. Heck, the Lime Kiln Trail can take you all the way to Sedona :o . Nice morning hike with a cool breeze :D .
The book suggested Verde Lea Market for lunch. The Torta was very tasty! Another nice outing from the Boots and Burgers book. :y:
