Lunch at the Rim again. I'm beginning to like this very much.

I used a track from @DixieFlyer for this hike. It was my second time hiking from the Geronimo Trailhead, the first time hiking Geronimo, Turkey, a portion of West Webber and a BSA trail (Milk Ranch Point West). I hiked the loop in a CCW direction.

I didn't care for the the extra baggage of the Geronimo trail, but you need it if you want to hike this loop from the Geronimo TH. I think it would be a better loop if started from Milk Ranch Rd.

I very much enjoyed the Turkey trail. It's a good track, has outstanding views of the Mogollon Rim on the way up and is a great workout, getting steeper as you approach the rim. I stopped for lunch at a large rock outcropping about a third of a mile from the top. If I had turned around there, it would have been a worthy hike. I continued on to Milk Ranch Road, headed south towards the West Webber trail and then down West Webber.

Webber is also a very nice track, steep at the top but with reasonably good footing. I wasn't aware of it at the time, but the track I borrowed departs from the West Webber trail at the intersection with the BSA trail mentioned earlier and follows the BSA track back to the Geronimo trail. I decided to stay on the track I had. The BSA trail was actually pretty cool, a little overgrown in places, but fun. You might find some nice fall colors there in another week or two. Since I started late (11:20ish), I was in the shade the entire way down.

I liked this loop a lot. I will more than likely return to give it another go. There were a couple of missed opportunities: I want to climb the rock outcropping where I ate lunch and I want to see the rest of West Webber. As it was, it was a very fun hike on a great day.
