We hoped for a wet hike in and around First Water Creek with plenty of running water but we were disappointed... we had a few sprinkles at Horse Staging Lot (muddy and very slick) and about 2 minutes of light sprinkles in the middle then dry the rest of our loop.

We followed the trail in the narrow wash from Horse Staging out to First Water Creek, headed toward Hackberry for a ways, then turned around and followed the eastern part of the creek back to Second Water Trail then around past First Water TH and finally followed the horse trail back to Horse Staging. The last part of the horse trail has had some pretty heavy maintenance.

While there was some running water in First Water Creek... it was barely enough to get my new Merrell Moab Mid Waterproof boots wet. But enough to make for slippery slick-rock.

Just a few cell phone pics today...
