The East Rim BSA Trail is another trail I have been meaning to do but since the Tonto National forest is closed I thought I would cover the upper route only today. Will have to save the meat of the trail for another day, hopefully in a bit cooler weather or earlier in the morning. This is a route not a trail that leads from the Milk Ranch Road to the signed end of the East Rim Trail. I followed a GPS route to the Rim and on the way back I followed what looked like a faint trail. This return route took me along a slightly different path and I actually think it is the best route. The East Rim Trail comes up from below along the Pine Canyon Trail and ends in the middle of nowhere when it gets to the top of the rim. There is a sign at the end of the East Rim Trail that informs you that the trail ends here. Probably the only reason this route to the end of the East Rim Trail is significant is that many do this as a loop hike with the Donahue Trail and this is the connecting route.

Spooked up a couple of elk on this hike and could hear them bugling for some time. There are some good views on the rim at the end of the im Trail but are limited because of the trees. I bet the views are better as you descend the East Rim Trail.
