What a giving, last minute decision to explore another Rim Country gem. While the trek to Nash Point itself isn't stupendous in splendor, being that most of the "trail" is a two track, the views that greet you at 1.10 miles in serve up a nice appetizer before the main course atop the black jagged edge of Nash Point. "Dessert" (the best part, right?!) was when we landed at our bushwack, off-trail outcropping, overlooking Fossil Creek. Above the canyon the views delighted us! Bradshaws, Sedona, SF Peaks, curious red crusty towers, Coconino Forest, the Rim, and Mazatzals, oh my! Sights inside the binos included snow creating on Snowbowl. What a trip!
There were some other delights of this hike, including zero humans, little trash and plenty of tracks and sign. We will definitely return to scout out more dope lunch n beer spots and to explore more of the treasures this area offers.
Perfect, post snow weather although a mucky slodge at times. No matter- the positives outweighed the nearby target shooting, brush scratches, the clump-boots and the sound of the 87 for the first 1-2 miles. Oh-and my pack weight, testing out the new overnighter. Beer is a fair way to test pack weight,ya? 😁🍻
