1st trip
Last week I did a loop hike that I dubbed Red Geronimo Milk, so this week I decided to try a different flavor of milk, and this one was much tastier!

This hike is north of Payson, near Pine. I started and ended the hike at the Geronimo TH on FR 440, which is near Camp Geronimo, and is a couple of miles off of Control Rd #64.

The route was a CCW lollipop loop hike which followed this sequence:
TH > Highline > Geronimo Trail> Turkey Trail > FR 9381F > Milk Ranch Rd(FR 218) > West Webber Trail > Milk Ranch West Trl(BSA) > Geronimo Trl > Highline > TH

I particularly enjoyed Turkey Trail #217: It had great views along with a cool rock outcropping along the upper part of the trail. It was a lot nicer going down the West Webber Trail than going up it.

This would a good hike when there is hot weather in Phoenix -- the temperatures would be cooler than those in the Valley, and you'd be in shade for much of the hike.

After the hike I made the obligatory stop at That Brewery in Pine!
