Started off at a decent TH with some informational signage at the wilderness boundary. The trail begins as a tral and then drops into a wash. Along the way there is an old airstrip carved graded into a flat area and what might have been a stone cabin, now just a wall. Steph said 5 miles round trip. Mopah Peak looked a little farther than that, but it was a nice morning. Lesson learned. Old rocks know where they are. GPS tracks might lie.

We stopped off to check an old mine claim marker. The little knoll had a nice view so theat became both our lunch break and turn around point since we had to find our next campsite as well as replenish our ice at Vidal Junction. (Possibly ice cream was consumed there as well the ice replenishment.) A coyote, the largest animal we'd seen yet in the Turtle Wilderness, entertained us during our repast as he tried to slink away unnoticed.

I'm sure the Mpah Springs would have been wonderful, but this was a nice little hike.
