Drove up from Scottsdale Friday night and camped at Lone Rock. We caught a beautiful sunrise in the morning and then headed right over to Wire Pass TH with hopes to beat the crowds.

Upon arrival at the TH there were a good amount of vehicles, but to our surprise we were able to stay away from other people for a good portion of the beginning of the hike! James had been prior and he said they have replaced a tree with a ladder at one of the obstacles, thus making it easier for more people to be able to continue further in the canyon. It was beautiful in there, minus a bit of graffiti (mostly towards the beginning).

We chatted with some backpackers for a bit. They had just finished the Arizona Trail and now were WALKING back home to Montana. Wow! And they were using old school maps not GPS; just super cool people to chat with!

We turned around when the canyon got bouldery because we wanted to save some energy for more exploring around. On the way out, it was a nightmare of huge groups of tourists and honestly we couldn’t get out of there fast enough! Beautiful place, really glad I saw it; would probably only return on a weekday though!
