The house is currently closed, though it looked like they were doing some work to maybe reopen soon. The trails are still open. Quite a few people visiting.

We did the interpretive loop, around the pond and back, then had a picnic lunch.

Windy day, though sunny.

This is another place I had never stopped to visit before. It is located about 7 miles east of Sierra Vista on SR 90 along the San Pedro River. Way back in the 1980's I would drive this section of highway when visiting friends in Bisbee, but not so much in recent decades. Anyway, thought it would be a good choice for a little easy leg stretcher (hiked about 3 miles). With its proximity to Sierra Vista, there were a fair number of folks out for some fresh air and exercise. Some families with kids, mountain bikers, and trail runners. Not too crowded though, so lots of trail time alone. Just right. :)

San Pedro RNCA - Murray Springs TH

Once again, I engaged the San Pedro RNCA via the Murray Springs TH and made way towards the Hereford Bridge TH to the south. Running my urban wheel-set on a ride that was entirely trails (mostly single track) - mixed with extended hiking (4 miles) - that would prove to be an effective bike-hiking type of workout.

The weather, hazy sun then overcast with light to moderate winds throughout...a bit of a capricious headwind, had little effect on the upgrade ride to the south. The San Pedro RNCA being a menagerie of surfaces with extended heavy-sand in places throughout - was even more erroded here and there than earlier in the month - lots of soft top dirt that was more firmly compacted last time - plenty of resistance throughout! I was pleased with the overall performance, both hiking / riding split at about 15/85% - got one flat tire coming into the half-way point, and took time-out to perform a protracted 30' repair followed by a 30' afternoon nap :zzz: on the new picnic tables at the the Hereford Bridge TH - Good times & training! ;)

Spent the afternoon doing future routing R&D about the upper San Pedro River, which is muddy in bank throughout one might say - flowing briskly at near flood levels. After a few weeks of not getting out due to many conflicting issues - I finally took a little walk in the aftermath of the daily afternoon rain here in Sierra Vista. The riverside trails south of the San Pedro House were just the right balm after a stormy July of transformation...

As the wind was beating the house relentlessly all morning - with gust near gale force at times - I chose to make this afternoons outing a trip down to the riverside. Especially nice, as the trailhead is but 8 miles from home. I had no intention of staying on the San Pedro Trail exclusively or merely hiking a section to log - not today - I wanted to bushwack and cross the river a few times...then stretch-it-out a bit on what seems like a flat hike after recent elevations. From the San Pedro River Valley, I could get perspective on the Huachuca Mountain Range and reflect on a few of the hikes from weeks passed. Further I could ponder the hikes and peak bagging yet to come this season in the home range. The GPS tells the tale of a meandering reconoiter that makes me feel fortunate to live in Baja Arizona these days! Avg. Grade 27.3%

After a night at the privately owned, closed to the public, upper San Pedro near Benson, we proceeded to the portion of the river at the San Pedro House. I can understand why they decided to open this to the public. It is beautiful! Here the river runs very high and the scenery is gorgeous. There are several trails and a guided-walk that is offered. You basically grab this pamphlet at the trailhead at it directs you to different "stations" along the trails and tells you a bit of background and what to look at near each station. Although I didn't do this, it seemed pretty interesting if you like that sort of thing. Personally, I like to explore on my own. A guided walk reminds me too much of something my parents would have taken me to do when I was a little kid.

This was the last bit of research my sister had to do, and after this we were pretty much free to go wherever we wanted in the area. Since I've never explored Southern Arizona at all (other than Mount Graham), I was in heaven with all of the options. We chose the Patagonia Mountain area, but that's a separate triplog.
