There is a Coconino NF plan to open General Crook trail along the rim and connect AZT #27 to Cabin Loops / Highline as well as link up to “Rim Country Trails”.
A group of us spent 2½ days clearing a boat load of deadfall and dog fir for about 6 miles from General Springs to FR 300 just past Myrtle trail(@FR 137). Good times with a great group. Saw 4 elk and 1 deer early on Sunday.
After we finished on Saturday did a short side trip up Baker Butte. On Sunday on the way back took a detour to Happy Jack went up Hutch Mtn then Apache Maid on my way to I-17.
"I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts."
