It had been 6 months that I have hiked in the Payson area, so I decided to change that today.

It turned out to be a nice day for a hike -- it was barely cool enough for me to enjoy this hike.

There was no water in the creek crossings today, so there was no issue to keep my feet dry.

There was a decent amount of water at the Tonto Creek confluence, but not as much water as normal.

There were 2 people fishing at the confluence, but they were the only people that I saw all day long.

This is a fun hike, but it is a tough one -- 70% of the elevation gain is on the way back.

The trail was generally rocky and slippery, so I did not go any faster downhill than I went uphill.
