Basset Peak is in the Galiuro Mountains, an extremely isolated sky island in the middle of nowhere. But, is a beautifully carved long trail in otherworldly Galiuros. I got up at 530 but started trail at 9. The first 2 miles is little gain in a covered Evergreen forest type road. The climb starts in forest conditions,steep, but never very steep, as hike is well stretched.You get ticked off a little, as it's hard to out hike the black water tube which finally finds the spring around 6200 feet. Here there is a clear pool off water where I found 15 Arizona Sister butterflies bathing and eating. The breakout is big views and Arizona type bright rock swithbacks. You enter a small Aspen type forest again before the "Gigantic View" super ridge. The east divide it's called I believe. WOW!! You've hiked 4.1 miles. The ridge calls your resting gene, overwhelming sites both sides. But now you face the very unique 1.4 mile Bassett peak run. The 1st mile is flat 'ledge', crazy spire rocks in your view. Just stay on ledge,on course. There are 2 more earn your hike's. Pretty steep up through the forest,but with switchbacks and, a bushwack the final 120'. This is a hikers hike-variety packed and a challenge. 11.5 out and back.
