Wanted to do the Cactus Forest Trail because HAZ needed a description of this route and while searching the trails in SNP I found one I have never been on before, Freeman Homestead Loop trail. I enjoyed the short Freeman Homestead Trail but I think I enjoyed looking up the history on the internet more. Found out a lot more on the origins of Houghton road, Harrison road and of coarse Freeman road. I explored a route that takes you from Javelina Picnic grounds to cactus Forest Trail, this comes in handy when coming off Tanque Verde Ridge and need to get to Old Spanish trail Irvington Trail Head for your ride home. From the Freeman Loop I followed Cactus Forest Loop Road backward crossing Javelina Wash West and Javelina Wash East. Took me .4 miles to finally figure out I passed Javelina Wash east and had to back track (I really need to pay more attention to my GPS). Took Javelina Wash East down to Lime Falls and continued on back to the Cactus Forest Trail and back to the Broadway Trail Head. Javelina Wash east had water in some of the small pools but it was pretty raunchy looking, luckily I didn't need water. It looked like Javelina Wash West was running a bit at least where it crossed Cactus Forest Loop Road.
