We made it in maybe a quarter mile before the grave site. We hiked on 4/2. Plenty of water in the stream and found a nice site with streams on both sides of our camp. I got really confused with the trail when it clearly made a turn to the left up the hill towards Lincoln Spring with no apparent trail that stayed right that would keep us close to the creek per the posted GPS route in hike AZ. The route in HikeArizona keeps you along the creek bed, but there was no trail in or along the creek. At that point does one just choose their own path along the creek and when does an actual trail appear again? Was there a trail along the stream bed that has since been washed out due to the fire? I was happy to get my teenage son to backpack with me a few miles in so didn't push the bit of bushwhacking on him the next day to do some day hiking up the stream. But the route that went left up the hill and through a gate...once we hit the gate we turned back around and went back to the stream...does that reconnect with Deer Creek or is that the actual trail?

The stars were amazing and we had a cool night time fly over of some sort of military practice sortie.
