1st trip
Route Scout GPS Route Recorded on Route Scout View
Started from the Ramada 7 area around 7am. Went north on Waddell to Ford Canyon, then up Ford. Muddy trail, lots of wildflowers. There was a good amount of water flowing in Ford Canyon, but it was pretty easy to keep our shoes dry. One bypass around some big pools, but that was it. Started seeing snow along the trail once we were on Goat Camp, then more snow along the ridge between Goat Camp and the service road. No human prints or tire tracks in the snow on the road, but a lot of animal prints. It was windy at the top of Barry Goldwater Peak, so we took some pics and headed back down. Once back to Goat Camp, we headed back north to Willow Canyon and took that easy. There was a nice amount of water at the spring, and one little patch of snow. Continued east to Mesquite Canyon and then took that back to the parking lot. Saw no one on Ford Canyon, a few people on Goat Camp, more people on Willow, and a ton of people on Mesquite. The parking lot was packed when we finished, and the Waterfall parking was a mob scene; I don't even want to think about how many people were packed onto that trail.

A lot of flowers along all the trails, especially poppies. The higher elevations suffered from the snow, and the brittlebush is past prime.
