We did a shorter version of this loop in the opposite direction a few years back and really enjoyed it so added a couple new trails to extend it and hiked it in a clockwise direction this time. This is a solid loop.

Thumb Butte Trail #33
And away we go. Nothing like a steep wake up climb to get the blood flow. Blacktop pavement helps get good traction and the switchbacks help keep you going at a nice pace. First time on this trail and better than expected.

Butte Creek Trail #321
This is a great trail. Nicely treed, flowing water in the creek, very nice grade, away from the main trailheads that it seems to not get much use, A+ in my book.

Sierra Prieta Trail #366
Also a first for us. Some climbs but not to bad. Most of the time you are hiking along a ridge. As we were climbing up towards the road a caravan of mountain bikers came at us. Thought for sure there was going to be a collision but I jumped one way and the lead bikers veered off the other direction so the crash was avoided. Let them pass then continued to onward to meet up with Thumb Butte Road. Trail gets high marks.

West Spruce Trail #264
I like this trail a lot. In this direction the grade is generally down so easy hiking and very nice views since your up high. The section we hiked was shorter than I remembered so it ended to soon.

Miller Creek Trail #367
Memory recall is either slipping or this trail has been found by the mountain bike community since our last visit. I had memories of this trail being more remote and less used, i.e. trail was thin and slightly overgrown. Not the case. Trail is very well defined with bike tracks and nothing remote about it. There was a slight flow in the creek so that was nice. Still, a great trail. Saw a small gopher snake crossing the trail so we helped move it along so it wouldn't get run over.

Overall a great loop option for the area. Weather was great on this day and although it was a holiday weekend the trails we hiked offered a lot of solitude.

Nice loop hike on Mingus.

Trailhead access at the picnic area was no issue as it was paved, right off the highway. The trails were damp with the recent rain and some were a little overgrown but overall a really nice loop.

The trail from the parking to Upper Mescal was probably the most overgrown but short. On the quick hike up to Upper Mescal TH we saw two deer. No trail between the Upper Mescal TH and the Bug Hallow TH but easy to navigate since you parallel the highway. Bug Hallow Trail was nice, and it was great to finish the entire trail on one hike. North Mingus Trail is a gem, especially the single-track which takes you into some nice pines. The Mingus Trail elevates the climb up to the top and definitely gets the heart pumping when hiked in the uphill direction. At the top of Mingus there were signs of trail closures due to a large logging effort. No logging was happening on this day so we stayed on the road and then hiked around the logging area as best we could eventually joining the planned trail hike back to the TH. Saw two more deer as we were hiking around the logging area.

Fantastic hike, but then Mingus never fails to deliver a first-rate hiking experience.

Hiked to the base via Derrick and a small section of the Highline, then made the climb up Promontory Trail which although steep was easy to follow on this day. Hiked over to the high point and enjoyed the views then did some exploring while taking advantage of the great temps.

Did one of Wally’s 9 before 9 hikes. The rain overnight provided that sweet desert smell. Lots of green along the trails, even some overgrowth, which provided that wilderness feel I remember from years back. Really enjoyed Black Mesa Trail. Great morning hike.

Started at 5:45.
Finished at 8:57.

Some standing water but nothing running.

Saw 4 other hikers along the way, 2 on Second Water and 2 on the Dutchman.

Saved the best hike for the last full day in Munds Park. Keeping with the plan to do hikes near our VRBO I figured a short five mile drive fit. I got this loop hike idea from a hike posted by @joebartels and @The_Eagle back in 2019. Parked off Willard Springs Road aka FR253 and headed for the Telephone Trail start. Very pretty road walk and the trail was easy to locate. Telephone is very steep but overall in great shape. Enjoyed the peepholes. Views along the way down were outstanding. Reached 89A in no time and walked south to the start of the Thomas Point Trail, stopping to pick a few apples along the way. Thomas Point is a great trail up as the grade is steady but even most of the way. Got to the top in no time. On the walk back to the car the rain started so we stopped and covered the packs which was a good plan as the rain started coming down in buckets. We found a little shelter to try and wait it out but after 20 minutes or so decided to carry on in the rain. When we reached the car we were both drenched so just loaded up and headed back to the house. Even with the heavy rain this was/is an amazing hike. I’d do this monthly if I lived in Sedona or Munds Park for sure.

Day two in Munds Park we decided to check out the Interstate Trail. Most of the trails north of Munds Park are 2 track but there are a few single track trails too be found, Interstate being one of the longest. The trail is in excellent condition and very easy to follow as it mostly parallels the I-17. The one negative I would give it is for the numerous zigs and zags the trail tread takes. Switchbacks are great on a steep grade but get a little annoying on relatively flat terrain. Hiked out to Fern Tank, enjoyed a snack, and returned back. Very beautiful area and didn’t see a soul.

Spent a couple days in Munds Park with the family so decided to check out some of the hiking trails in the area.

Did an out an back from the trailhead off Pinewood Blvd. Very nice trail conditions. The view at Crystal Point was slightly obscured by the surrounding trees so we didn’t stay long. Continued to the lake with interesting discussion on the soon to be released Debian Bullseye release. Returned by reversing our tracks.

No plans for the day so decided to take a short morning drive, up 87, down 188, detour through Globe, then closed the loop out on the 60.

While on 188 I saw a trailhead sign so decided that would be a good place to enjoy the lunch we packed and do a little exploring. Parked off the road, opened the tailgate and enjoyed lunch in the wet desert since it had rained that AM. After lunch we strapped on the trail runners and headed down the FR to find the Park Trail #66 trailhead which wasn't that far. It was warming up so decided to just hike up the trail a short distance as a recon for a future visit. Spring looks to be a good time to enjoy this trail, especially in a wet winter when the falls are running. Will be back.

Summer morning hike at South Mountain. 82 degrees in SE Mesa when we left, 92 at the TH 30 minutes later, only 93 at the finish. My breathing was off during the climb up Eliminator and I had a hard time getting it regulated so I struggled a bit at the start. Got into rhythm about half way up and started feeling better. A quick stop at Goat Hill and then cruised across and down Pyramid back to the TH. Nice filler hike with all the NF closures.

Started from the Rim Top TH. Plan was to hike out on the Bike Trail about 1.5 miles, then cross over and drop down into Woods Canyon, hike the upper part of Woods and the entire Willow Springs canyons, completing the loop via a faint FR back to the TH. I had several alternate drop down points and bail out points identified as backup, but none were needed.

We both really enjoyed this canyon loop hike. On a difficulty scale I'd give it 3.5, maybe 4 if unprepared and inexperienced in canyon hiking. The drop down point was the big question but I got lucky with my guesstimate. A little steep at the top but a quarter of the way down I saw a nice looking game trail that we jumped on and zigged our way to the bottom. Woods Canyon is easy canyon hiking with no water, a wide floor, and very large, stable rocks to hop across. We saw 4 very large elk gracefully cross in front of us all sporting large antler racks. We were moving so good that we missed the Willow Springs Canyon junction and had to backtrack a bit but no worries.

Hello Willow Springs Canyon. A lot different than Woods. Flowing water, a lot of deadfall, slick rocks, thick banks, and very narrow stretches along the way. It alone is a solid 4 on the difficulty scale. We just took our time, and enjoyed the fantastic scenery and wildlife (saw another group of 3 elk cross the canyon). Once we hit the use trail it was smooth sailing back to the TH. Temps in the canyon were ideal on this day.

Followed the route posted by @joebartels, @The_Eagle, and @rayhuston last September. Nice combination of FR and trails along the loop. Hutch Mountain Lookout was manned. Most of the tanks along the way had some water. Saw a few campers along the FR's and one group of horseback riders along the AZT so lots of solitude. Weather was great.

Arrived to an empty TH but it was full when we returned. It’s been close to six years since we last hiked See Canyon which is too long, great trail, seemed easier than I remembered. Made the road walk to the south TH of Bear Canyon Lake. Lots of campers along the road and lots of folks fishing at that end of the lake. Planned on hiking the entire length of the Bear Canyon Lake Trail but the east side wasn’t that fun so we headed up to walk a FR to the north side and then followed the trail on the west side which was in really nice condition. Hiked Bear Canyon back to the Rim Road and then back down See Canyon. Bear Canyon was really nice and easy to navigate following game trails. Wildlife sightings included a snake, lots of squirrels, and a eagle. Really nice day.

Nice walk up to Mount Ord via FR 626. Crossed paths with a handful of hikers/runners, and cars/trucks. Took a side trip across a nice ridge where we took a snack break. On the way down a young man on a ATV informed us that a bear had crossed the road just in front of us but unfortunately we couldn’t find it. We did spook a deer along the ridge but that was it for wildlife seen. FR 626 is in excellent shape.

Loop hike to check out the upper portion of Devil's Canyon from the Oak Flat Campground.

FR 2438 and down the Devil's Canyon Access Trail Temps were cool to start so the road walk was very enjoyable. The Access Trail into the canyon appears to not see regular use but easy enough to make your way down to the canyon floor. At this point the canyon is fairly wide open.

Upper Devil's Canyon After a few hundred yards of an open canyon things changed. Thick vegetation, wall to wall pools to work around, fallen trees, thick catsclaw and every other pointy plant you can think of, did I mention thick vegetation, so the going was slow. Ryan rolled his ankle about half way through but after a short break felt he was OK to push on. Scenery was really good which helped accept the not so great hiking conditions.

Rancho Rio Creek I had two exit waypoints loaded in RS, a trail that topped out at the Lower Devil's Canyon Trailhead, and Hackberry Creek. When RS announced 500 feet to the Rancho Rio Exit we decided to make our exit via a trail, considering Ryan's sore ankle and that we still had 4 or so miles of jeep roads to hike. There was a small rock stack that marked the start of the trail up and out of the canyon. The trail was slightly overgrown but considering what we had just pushed through it seemed like a super highway. Had lunch under a tree upon reaching the top.

Jeep Trails back to the Campground Thought this part might be a little boring but the walk went by very quickly and the views were pretty nice along the way. Took short breaks when some shade was found since the temps were starting to rise. Stashed ice water at the car was very enjoyable.

One of the tougher hikes we have done. Ryan says "one and done", I could probably talk myself into going back :)

Bigger lasso loop starting from the Diamond Mountain TH off FR1705. Followed the horse trail to where it joins the Sunflower Trail. Trail conditions were really nice, even the less traveled trail that makes up the Black Ridge portion. Had lunch in a dry Upper Sheep Creek. Brunson Tank is at the lowest level I’ve seen. Crossed paths with a trail runner, thru-hiker, a pair of day hikers, and a rattlesnake, all who were very polite. Got plenty of vitamin D on this hike :)

Perfect weather on this day for this loop. Arrived to an empty TH and only 3 other vehicles when we finished. All the trails are in good condition, Kellner and Icehouse did have some deadfall to navigate around. The lower portion of Telephone was in excellent condition. A trail maintenance crew arrived at the top of Icehouse as we started our decent. First trip to Signal Peak. Views were outstanding. Nothing negative about this loop, it is a favorite.

Nice workout hike up to the ridge line, also served as an introduction to the hotter days that are here now. Went left at the top for a bit. Just a few hikers past the pools, between the pools and the trail head those numbers increased. Very nice April hike.

First time hiking in this area and I really enjoyed it. I wanted to check out a horse trail I spotted off the Sunflower Trail so we parked at Bushnell Tanks. Saw 3 deer near the junction of Sunflower and the horse trail so it worked out nicely. Will definitely be back for a bigger hike when temps are a bit cooler. The forest road to the actual parking area was recently graded and looked to be in great shape.

Needed to stay in cell range today and it’s been a while since we’ve hiked from Warpaint so opted on this loop with an out and back on Geronimo. From the start all the way to the mid way point of the return on Geronimo the trail traffic was very light. Then like a bolt of lightning the mountain bikers started coming down Geronimo, and fast, sometimes just short of a colliding with us. In all probably 5 groups of 6-8 riders each. Was happy to jump back on the Corona trail. A little warm but not to bad. Would do this hike again but on a weekday.

Had an open slot for a short hike so decided on Lone Mountain. Enjoyed the climb up the first time so decided to do it again. Beautiful day.
