Took part in the AZT in a Day event hiking the Mazatzal Red Hills section. We drove up Friday afternoon and hiked in about 5 miles from Doll Baby trailhead before finding camp for the night. Next day we ascended the big hill out of East Verde Valley over to Brush Spring. Took a break at the spring an fileted several liters. Plenty of water with several pools at the spring.

Continuing southbound we found some more good pools on the other side of Red Hills Divide below Knob Mountain. There is lots of bedrock in the section so with all the rain the water was pooling and flowing nicely. Eventually we continued on to City Creek trail junction and over to the Park completing the section. For camp we hiked back towards the City Creek trail junction for our exit next day.

Next day we just had to hike down City Creek trail about 6 miles to the trailhead. However, since we were parked at Doll Baby we also had to hike the road but it was only 1.2 miles. One thing to note is that with all the rain seemed like every decent sized drainage had either flowing water or pools. Great time to be in the Mazzies until it dries up!
