20 of us took the tour with Desert Foothills Land Trust. Neighbors Ned, Nancy, Leon joined Judy and I. Interesting to hear about the Native American history in the area as well as US Soldiers, gold miners and cowboys. It's on private land that has been granted access to the land trust...only accessible through tours.

Did this backpacking trip with the Arizona&Beyond Hiking and Backpacking group from meetup.com. Decently challenging hike with a heavy pack on, if only using a day pack I don't think it would be so bad. The top of the mesa is beautiful, especially if you bushwhack over to one of the edges overlooking the city/valley. There were streams of water early on in the hike (couple miles or so), after that I think it would be pretty hard to find filterable water. Temps were very manageable, with only a light jacket on in the evening to keep warm. We went to find the ruins, easy if you have the GPS coordinates logged - hard if you are just walking in the general direction. They are a good 4 or 5 miles out once you get to the top of the mesa.

The Desert Foothills Land Trust organizes approximately six trips to the Cave Creek Cave a year. I was fortunate enough not just to get a spot, but to get a spot with a relatively small group of eight. There's a mystique to the cave that I don't want to spoil with detailed descriptions or photos. This is a special place that is a must if you care about local history or land conservation.

A friend called up with an opportunity to visit the Cave Creek Cave today. Definitely couldn't turn that down. Easy hike but some great history and geology along the way.
