Been looking at this hike on paper for a long time. Made one attempt to get to it up the old 4x4 trail through Chino Canyon a while back and ran into a locked gate. This hike beats a lot of the "Spring" hikes on the north side of the Ritas.

Some people would walk into the landscape back there and think: "Look at this lifeless, forbidding place." Personally, I was enamored with the plethora of true Sonoran desert flora that Agua Caliente and Chino canyons offer. If the Rincons house a true Saguaro forest, then it can be said that Agua Caliente canyon houses a true Santa Rita Prickly Pear forest. The groves of them were stunning back in there.
