Reverse of a Jun 08 2013 trip.

Nelson Trail #159
The most enjoyable portion of the day. Cooler in the morning. Sycamore Creek was running fair for a good stretch.

Verde Rim Trail #161
Love the Mazzie + Superstition views. Too warm and humid.

Salt Flat Trail #71
Purposely put this at the end because it's a steep ascent. Done, prefer ascending.

Pine Mountain Verde Rim Loop
Just realized how much I admire this little masterpiece.

Synopsis
Great to hike with other kids in the HAZ neighborhood. Nothing was screaming killer hike with summer temps holding. Always a good hike out in this area. Need to let the drive fade out of memory then hit this in autumn for a change next time.
