Fantastic, very strenuous hike that goes through some outstanding scenic forests and meadows. I went with my friends Sanchez and Corey after staying the night at the Locket Meadow campground. After the initial couple miles, the trail goes through an epic section of aspens that look like something out of a horror movie. After the aspen section, there is a road hike for a few miles that goes to all the wells on the way up to the basin. After the last well, the trail continues up up up and eventually starts to switchback until the junction with the Weatherford trail. Here is where the elevation started to get to me. The alpine section is always my favorite area as there is nowhere like it anywhere in AZ! Finally saw the first other people of the day when we reached the main saddle up there. Then the steady stream of people didnt stop. I was not surprised, because the weather was just about perfect that day. Now I consider myself an avid hiker and in pretty good shape, but once I got to that saddle it seemed like my legs just could not move any longer. It takes a lot to push through those feelings sometimes. It took about 6 1/2 hours to get to the top, and only 3 hours to get back down to camp. This hike was a real wake-up call to me and next time I go up there I hope to be carrying 20lbs less. This hike is one of the Penultimate hikes here in AZ as the views were epic and non-stop.
