After work Trail run - turned hike. Cave creek was raging. So cool!
Crossing cave creek is not possible without getting your feet wet. The water is cold, but not too bad. Several of the eastern side canyons have some small flows that confluence with Cave Creek about 1.5 miles upstream of the parking area.

I looked for a dry fall I had seen on the topo but I forgot to preload the map and there's wasn't any cell reception, so I just explored along the creek for awhile. It started raining as I ran back to the trailhead at sunset.

This was my first time to Spur Cross, and I definitely plan on returning!

Nice consistent flow. The snow and rain last weekend certainly helped out.
