I needed something cooler and wanted to check out some new area around Pivot Rock.
This loop for the most part was shaded

Starting just off of SR87, I followed an old 2 track, which is the beginnings of Pivot Rock Canyon. This turned into a real nice single track that seems to get a bit of use. Wildcat spring was flowing nicely.

I was in the area and hadn't checked out Pivot Rock Spring in awhile, so I made the side trip over there.

From this point of the hike on, there were areas of water. Enough water to soak my neck gaiter in, to keep me cool.

At one point in PR Canyon I interrupted three campers taking a bath in one of the deeper pools. awkward...

I wanted to check out a bit of Toms Creek. There were some nice clear pools of water scattered through the short bit i got into. I found a shady spot next to a pool for a lunch break and my turn around point.

On the way back, I took Hicks and Duncan Canyon to Corduroy Canyon. I found a rock alcove with a blackened ceiling that appeared to have been used for quite some time.

On the day, 1 group of hikers, a handful of ORVs and campers, 2 snakes. Also, 2 guys shooting automatic rifles that scared crap out of me, when they started firing when I was about 100yds away.
