The Papago Springs - Aliso Spring trail segments that go back into Shaw Canyon just below Rincon Peak had been something I've been looking at for a long time. I especially wondered if Aliso was even still there. It turned into a really fun afternoon out away from distractions and crowds. The Papago Springs portion is an easy trek, suitable for beginners, and both trails offer awesome views of Rincon PeakWilderness as well as interesting old "junk" to look at. The geology out there is interesting, as well. One note of caution: Watch out for people shooting near FSR 3541, they may not be watching out for you. There was a group out there that gave me a confused look when I asked why they were firing blindly into the Forest, with no berm or hill to stop the rounds...
