Bruce put together a nice loop in the part of Goldfields I had not hiked before. It was mostly off trail so some tough miles but made up for it with the views. We started by hiking over to scenic overlook of Canyon Lake Massif. Took a break there for a few minutes before heading down towards the Salt River below the dam. We didn’t make it all the way to Salt River because difficult terrain but it was close enough for us.

Then we hiked up Willow Creek drainage up to the Horns of Dilemma where we had lunch and had great views of both Canyon Lake and Salt River below the dam. After lunch we continued in a southerly direction on a ridgeline which provided the best views of the day and some pleasant hiking. We took a break on Peak 2881 which I believe was the high point for the day. The only tricky part was coming off the peaks south slope which was loose scree mixed with cholla just for added sport factor. After that a bit more ridgeline and a drainage back to the vehicle.
