Led a group of friends up to the well earned views that reside in the impressive canyon segment of Park Creek.

Trail is still in great condition thanks to the cattle, hunters and hearty canyoneers one of which recently ribbon marked the upper portion of the trail.

Getting the hard work done first on this hike makes for a leisurely stroll back down soaking in the expansive views of the mighty Tonto Basin that never get old.
Wildflowers ObservationModerate Poppies are really beginning to come to life along the middle section of the trail in the burn area.
