The Tonto National Forest was closed so had to limit my hiking to the Coconino Forest. I have been wanting to do the Donahue Trail but would have to limit it to the upper 1.3 miles up on the rim. I got started late because I drove in from Tucson but it's a short hike so figured it wouldn't matter. The trail is at a sort of posted trail head along the Milk Ranch road. This is a good trail, easy to follow and looks like it gets some use. The one take away from this hike were the number of quite impressive large juniper trees. There are some nice views overlooking pine just as the trail breaks to go down the rim. I will have to wait for another day to see what the rest of the trail looks like.

The road on Milk Ranch Mesa is in fair condition and there were a few campers along it. There are a couple good view points along the road overlooking Webber Canyon that make for nice stops. I picked a heck of a week to go up to Payson, the heat wasn't much better than Tucson but it was only in the low 90's on the rim.
