First time in this area but Bruce had done several hikes here before so I was along for the ride. Interesting canyon starting out in Garfias Wash for the first couple of miles. Hell Canyon was a worthy journey eventually turning around at a deep pool and heading back to Horse Creek.
Eventually we picked up the trail by Horse Creek Spring and followed that through Burro Flat. As Bruce mentioned we saw several burros at a distance. We continued through a nice area around Burro Spring of saguaros and cholla over to some off trail. Bruce had drawn up a route to Pikes Peak but that turned out to be a peak to far. We ended up doing Peak 3019 on the topo instead which turned out well having some pretty nice views of it's own.
We made it back to trail and had lunch on wide saddle. From there we continued past 2 trailheads Burro Spring and Horse Creek on the way back to Garfias Wash. Good hike...much more to do in the area.
