Took advantage of the "cooler" day today to get another Superstition hike in. Headed out east to my favorite trailhead in the wilderness, Miles TH. Headed out from the ranch and headed up the Bull Basin trail at the first junction; then found the carins for Rock Creek about a mile up. Rock Creek trail has been decommissioned for 20 years, however, it is in better shape then some of the maintained trails out there. Stopped at the waterfall, which was bone dry for a quick break and continued on. I've hike this trail numerous times but have missed the 100+ year old Y Bar B corral and water trough each time. Fortunately I was able to finally find it today. The corral and water trough were built in 1909 to trap the wild burros that used to roam this portion of the Superstitions. Crazy to think about wild donkeys being in this area, but apparently a good amount were trapped. Had lunch at the corral and headed back. Had to take a slight detour at one point as a snake decided to lay across the trail and not move lol. Took my time getting back as it started to warm up pretty good. Saw a ton of bear scat and tracks and a couple deer on the way out and that was it, no other cars at the TH, which is perfect.
