i've done horton creek a few times, but never the derrick - horton loop
john kindly agreed to hike it this morning
left town at 0400 and were hiking by 0600
low 60s and cloud cover to start
recent rain made for damp trails and vegetation
easy grade through pine forest on derrick
some ups and down on highline
derrick and most of the highline section were new to me
last time on horton was seven years ago ( :o ) with @cactuscat
wandered around the spring for a few minutes taking photos
stopped at a few scenic creek spots on the way down
saw a couple dozen other hikers after not seeing anyone else until the spring
found my car door hanging open; guess we left it like that :lol: nothing missing, fortunately
enjoyed the loop
nice to get out of phoenix for a hike in the pines with good company :)
had breakfast at the 260 café in payson since we finished too early for the thai restaurant to be open
good times - thanks, john!
using the official stats for now
my track was short and john's was long on mileage
