easy trip in, much easier than last time when the whole place was under 4-6ft of snow!

bumped into a trio of HAZers (te-wa, hoffmaster, dirt4dinner) good to finally meet someone

woken up by a nasty ringtail about 430am, after hearing what he did to the other group i cant complain too much

really nice hike, a bit close to the road during the first section,

the trail is really smooth and relatively flat for the most part, with some nice views down onto flagstaff and good shots of doyle and fremont above

Really nice hike, a bit windy on the top from fremont saddle to the connection with the summit trail, between doyle and fremont saddles the area is really nice, reminded me of the sierras

Also the trail is a bit longer than its listed, I had 9.5miles one way on my gps, about 0.8miles longer than is listed

had never been to mt graham before, i was suprised by how steep the terrain was, perfect night at the trailhead, next morning hiked down and down and down, we ended up missing oak flat, didnt know it was on the horse trail that skips a some really slick rocks and hiking on metal sheets mounted into the side of rock, never seen that before, ended up setting up camp on a saddle before the trail drops, very steeply, down to the creek again,

then we headed down to the creek to get some h20 and the sky just opened up, after raining for about 30min it started to hail, marbled sized hail fell for about another 30min, didnt think it would end but it passed over and we had another clear night with a great sunset

as always this area is steep and overgrown, the trail was much easier to use this year than last, did a big loop using 93 - 70 - 73 - 74 - 75 -65 - 315, which is just a loop starting along the east fork of kp creek, then following along kp creek for a few miles, breaking away and crossing up and over into the next drainage (steeple creek), up to mudspring, further onto moonshine park, then dropping down onto grant creek and following the creek all the way to its source at about 9200ft, then following along what is labeled steeple trail (even thought it really is 65 upper grant trail) past long cienega and joning up to 315 to the trailhead

ran into the blue crew, out there doing trail maintainance, they were clearing deadfall and cutting new trail along steeple - it washed out after the fire that burned thru

93 & 70
they were unusually easy to follow, now when i say that i mean relative to my other experiences in this area, which means they are still relatively faint

73 - 74
only use small sections of these trails, maybe 2 miles each and they were pretty faint and require some pretty good route finding skills, but still easier than in the past, the blue crew is really cleaning up the area

75
as with any other hike down to the bottom of grant creek or kp this one is steep, the trail was very faint but manageable for being a primitive trail, i counted 28 creek crossings along the trail, and a section of killer switchbacks only to drop right back down!!!, coming from the bottom this trail is easy to find, however from the top it is very easy to miss as the TH is in a small meadow, if coming from this direction just walk to the opposite side of the meadow and the trail should be faintly visible, tough to get lost in a max 30yd canyon though

65 (marked as 73)
i could be wrong but on the maps i have this trail that connects from 315 over to grant creek and long cienega is 65, but the posted signs labeled it as steeple even though it didnt connect to steeple, lost it at mckintrick spring, looking at topo we climbed up and over into next drainage, heard some people farther down the meadow so i think the trail was rerouted thru the meadow and around the small peak we climbed

315
easy enough to follow until you reach the burn area, where ferns dominate the area, need to really look for the trail here

a little too warm for me, the entire hike is exposed to the sun, the caves offer a nice area to cool off in though, not the greatest hike but an easy area

nice area, pinchot cabin was all boarded up, apen springs was a nice area the trees have not started to bud there yet tho, flow from the springs was minimal, a lot of very large pines along the trail a few more than 2ft in diameter, the trees here are very green much different than along the opposite side of the rim near woods canyon, i did not notice any signs of ATVers that others had talked about, the trail is very very easy to follow, when you cross the road 171 i think it was the trail is to your left and dips down into the drainage on that side that was the only spot we had to look around for

nice area, just starting to warm up a bit, lots of trees etc just starting to bud, got pretty cold the first night we were there - down into the 20's, lots of frost in the morning and some ice in pools along the stream, it was neat to see the hills steaming tho as they warmed up, lots of sand and sandstone in the area, also there was a lot of wildlife in the area, saw a herd of elk, rabbits, squirrels, and lots of birds

the terrain isnt that difficult, do not cross the creek until you have to it is a much easier hike on the side closest to the "trailhead" if you can call it that, there is small sections of trail to follow here and there, wear long pants there are a lot of thorny bushes in the area
