I was watching the forecast for cloud cover and hoped to get another long hike in. There was an accident on US 60 just down the hill past the Pinto Valley Mine. It was just before 5 am and we were stopped. Fortunately we got by after about 10 minutes. The Nissan Kicks only had some damage on the front right so I would guess everyone was okay.
From there it was on to FR 449. FR 449 is good but FR 449A is interesting. The sand isn't too bad but there are some washed out areas and where the water has gone through it's black. I got to use 4wd and throw a little mud around. It will be more interesting if there's a good hard rain. I would say high clearance 4x4 only for sure now. The narrow creek crossings are still narrow but deeper from erosion. I bottomed the tail section on one of the ditch like crossings.
The Campaign trailhead is good if you make it. The area by the Reevis Mountain school wasn't hit too hard. Once you get beyond the school the area above Campaign creek on both sides is bad. Campaign trail may be bad but I only went to the Reavis Gap trail. The first mile of the Reavis Gap trail is toast. The good news is farther up the Gap trail is surprisingly okay. The Pine Creek area took a limited hit but a lot of the pines are okay. I hiked south toward Mound Mountain along Pine Creek and at the top of the first hill the fire stopped so I believe the Ponderosa pines near the Fireline trail are okay. I checked out Walnut Spring and there is very little water again so it probably will be seasonal at best. The sun came out and warmed things up so I retreated early on this one but I have some hope so it was good day.
