Was looking for a nice isolated area to hike in. Decided to head out to Miles TH and hike out on the Spencer Spring Trail which I have not done as of yet. Pulled up to the TH with two cars already there and a small village of a campsite at the ranch area. Started out on West Pinto, crossed Rock Creek and into the burn area. As with all the other hikes near water the area has been destroyed by the flooding. Again there was no way I was going to stay dry so decided to just walk through Pinto Creek. Lost the trail a couple of times (as it was gone) but finally made my way to Oak Flat. This area is untouched by the burn. Started down the Spencer Spring Trail and the first quarter of a mile was great as the fire did not touch this area. Then the burn area came, was a little washed out in places and the trail was overgrown here and there with poppy's, grass and my favorite catclaw bush. Made it over to Cement Spring, had a quick lunch and made my way back to the TH. I definitely want to head back out and complete Spencer Spring Trail as it was not as bad as I was expecting. Even though there were 2 cars at the TH I did not see anyone all day. Still a ton of water out there.
