It had been almost ten years (April'09) since I first visited this scenic, remote, and interesting off-trail area with HAZ- Eric (ssk44).

I was looking forward to a return trip and HAZ- Larry (Oregon_Hiker) was interested in joining me. This second trip was planned so we cound spend more time exploring a hidden cave area (actually a large alcove) at Pinal Creek Canyon that Eric and I stumbled onto when he and I first visited in April'09. On the short first visit, we visually determined that the cave may be used by still active inhabitant(s) as a location for a possible gold prospector to work/live out of and to store their personal and prospeting equipment. On this first visit, there was a very active bee hive on the roof of the cave so Eric and I could only view the cave inside from a distance. At this point, we then continued our enyoyable bushwhack :) hiking day exploring up and back down rugged and scenic perennial Pinal Canyon Creek.

This March'19 visit is best described by Larry's HAZ triplog- :next: https://hikearizona.com/x.php?x=163769 , photoset, and my well captioned with tag notes, and geocoded photoset referenced herein. My also referenced and edited GPS Hiking Route with all "key" waypoints included is available and would be a good reference for download to follow.

Try it .. you will .. like it! :D
