Day 2 of Pinetop vacation. :y: Headed out to Los Burros to check out the this loop. Directions to the TH are good, though somewhat outdated. The grocery store (and sign) are still there, but are now derelict so these structures may be on their way out. The street, just past the store, is the street that you need to turn on. However, the only sign I saw that confirmed that this was the street was the County road sign 3140. Never saw any signage for FS Rd #224 or for Vernon Rd. The road out there was in good shape; minimal washboarding. There are bathroom at this TH., but no water.

The hike was awesome! Got started just before 6am. Did this hike in CCW direction. The trail starts off flat for the first 3 miles, doing a great job of alternating between road and single track. At about 1.5 miles there was a trail connector called Chipmunk Springs Trail that connect to the Country Club Trail. After 3 miles I did some steady climbing in staggered stages. Climb for 50 ft, then have a nice .5 mile flat stretch, before climbing another 30 ft. Then repeat. All climbs were very gradual. So a "climb" of 50 ft. Might take .2 miles due to switchbacking. I flirted with two mountains: Pierce Mountain and Wishbone Mountain. The trail never really came near the summits, though I feel Pierce would have been very doable with a little effort. I was pretty much enshrouded in the forest for almost the entire hike. I can't recall where I've seen such a wide variety of pine growth; from the foot tall sprout to 80 ft tall "grandpas". It seemed like the saplings were everywhere I looked. The lone exception was a meadow that I crossed around the 2.5 mile mark. About 6 miles in (going CCW) I hit the crosscut. This provides an opportunity to shorten the loop considerable and will take you right back to the start of the loop. Continuing on the loop, there is a little bit of a climb and then I drooped into a very cool, but gloomy section of the trail. I could tell that sunlight didn't hit this area for any duration or intensity. Very green and very shadowed. Unfortunately, with the descent that meant there was going to be another climb as I made my way up to pass between Wishbone and Pierce Mountain. The elevation stabilized for a short time and then started a steady drop around the 9 mile mark. I really enjoyed this section of the trail. A). It was flat or declined and B) it was occurring along the side of the mountain following the contours of the slopes, which were significant both above and below. Very cool stretch. Reminiscent of the Ranch Trail ext. in Prescott, only more "pine-ish". After looping these two mountains I was thinking that I was close to done. :sweat: Sadly there was still close to 4 miles to go. This involved a couple more hills (mild climbs), an old corral, a windmill and watering trough, another trail connection (this was the Four Springs Connector, about 11.5 miles in) and a secondary TH (about 12 miles). This was located adjacent to County Rd 3140. This might actually be a better TH., even though it's a couple of miles further on County Rd 3140. There's plenty of parking and it ties directly into the trail. (With the Los Burros Campground TH there is an entry trail (maybe .15 miles long) before you get to the Los Burros Loop). However there are no bathroom at this TH.

One of the highlights of this hike were the elk. Came across 3 within the first half mile. I had been told that elk do not "bugle" unless they're in season. But these began bu"bugling" with my passing. Perhaps they "bugle" when they are annoyed as well? Then, about a mile later ( at the Bear Wallow Tank) I came across 20 more! Once they had scattered with my approach, I could here more "bugling" coming from several locations. Very cool! That was it for wildlife. I didn't see anyone on trails until I was getting back to the TH, where I encountered 2 parties heading in. Weather was perfect. High 60's for the duration of the hike.

We started at the campground and walked a couple miles and took the Lake Mountain Lookout trail. The lookout was definitely the highlight. The employee in the fire lookout was very friendly, shared lots of information, and even read us some of his poetry :) We decided just to head out after that, as it was getting a little late. I didn't want to make any more critical mistakes driving back to Phoenix, like I did on the way there (I tried to drive off from the gas station in Show Low with the gas pump hose still in my car :lol: ).

First time on Los Burros. I've been eyeing it for a while for the mountain bike because its part of the tour of the white mountains course and I wanted to see if I could do it.
The majority of the trail is single track, there are some sections that are old roads, and I could tell there had been some small reroutes here and there. Not sure how recent those are. Trail is well marked, should be no issues staying on course. Started at the trail head in the camp grounds and logged 14.2 miles. Ran into a few hikers at the beginning, one other guy on a bike, a couple people on horses, and a few locals roaming the woods.
The campgrounds seemed nice too, I wouldn't mind staying there down the rd. Weather was great, in the 70s, clouds rolled by most of the day, rain held off until we were on the highway leaving town.

note on my pictures, somehow the settings got messed up on my phone so the pictures came out weird. Looks like I used a filter, but I did not.

My wife and I were looking for a hike around the Pinetop area. We found the Los Burros loop hike. We started out much later than planned, about 9:00. The plan was to do the whole 14 mile loop, so we left the Los Burros camp ground and headed down the trail with our 2 dogs leading the way. The trail was easy to follow and a lot of it was on an old jeep 4x4 road. There were elk tracks and also turkey tracks all over the trail as we went along. We seemed to have the whole trail to ourselves, did not run into any other hikers till about 6 miles in, a mountain bike rider buzzed by as we were taking a break having lunch and there was a cowboy fixing some fence at the 1st water hole "reservation tank" we arrived at. The 2 water tanks we passed had lots of water in them, we actually grabbed some water from the bear wallow tank for the dogs as the temperature was getting pretty hot. The trail crossed a few nice open meadows and did not gain very much elevation, stayed pretty flat the whole way. We decided to take the shortcut trail that headed back to Los Burros C.G. because the dogs looked like they had enough of the heat and hot trail on there paw's. After all said and done we did about 8.25 miles and are planning on coming back and camping at Los Burros so we can do the other part of the loop only much earlier in the morning to avoid the heat.

Hiked the northern 'half' on Saturday & the southern 'half' on Sunday. I prefer the northern portion - it is not so 'logged out' as the southern. Overall the trail is well-marked and it would likely be rated 'easy'.
We camped @ Los Burros CG - decent enough camp, although there is wonderful camping nearby on the nearby forest roads as well.

Apparently there was a mountain-bike race the preceding W/E - somehow the riders can seem to carry full GU packs but have an issue with finding room for an empty one -

Pierce Spring was locked but did have two stock tanks that were full. We cached water for the group the night before, rather then pump.

White Mountains Winter 2013


I needed to feel some snow beneath my feet - so having heard from my neighbors Terry and Giselle about their New Year's trek to Sunrise Ski Park (check out => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=1307 ), I thought a couple of days in the White Mountains would be "just the ticket". I couldn't take advantage of my Marriott Rewards or Priority Club Rewards booking a hotel since none of their hotels in the vicinity of the White Mountains are "pet friendly". Luckily the Best Western in Eagar AZ will accept dogs in the room, so we had our base camp.

Wednesday 1/2 - Arrived in the White Mountains late morning via Hwy 260 with our first stop near Sunrise Ski Park and FR112 and the Railroad Grade Trail #601 (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=15451 ). Lots of snow fun on the slopes of the Railroad Grade. FR117 was unplowed so our afternoon plans to explore Green's Peak and the Four Knolls (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=792 ) were thwarted. Our back-up plan was to explore trails near the village of Greer. Mini-hikes on West Fork Trail #94 and Butler Canyon Trail #98 (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=784 and http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=2250 ) and exploring some real estate poking around the village. You can see the scarred forest and how close it came to torching all of Greer from last summer's Wallow Fire (see => http://wildfiretoday.com/2011/06/09/wal ... r-arizona/ and http://hikearizona.com/map.php?QX=769 ). We ended the day with a sunset hike of the G&F Grasslands (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=963 ). Grasslands lived up to the hype for surefire wildlife encounters as we met up with a herd of mule deer.

Thursday 1/3 - After a frigid night, arrived at the South Fork Trail #97 (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=602 ) trail head with my truck thermometer indicating 19degF (neglected to get photo evidence, but did capture the noon time temperature of 23degF). We hiked the 3 miles to the bridge with the dogs enjoying the snow. Once again scars from the Wallow Fire could be seen along the hiking route. Next up was Pole Knoll (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=802 ). Hiking was challenging post-holing your route beside the set track for cross country skiing. I was very impressed with the skiing conditions at Pole Knoll - makes me want to break out my skis! We Wrapped up our White Mountain tour with some photo ops at Horseshoe Cienega (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=17512 ) and Los Burros (see => http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=603 ). We had a late day dinner in Show Low and returned home via Hwy 60.

Not sure how the 14-mile full loop could be only 500 AEG when I did 800+ on just the 10-mile medium loop ...

Anyway, barely slept on Saturday night. Slept about three hours, then aching knee made it hard to get back to sleep. So, after I finally gave up and got out of bed, I had to make a decision: Do the two schedule 6.5 milers (Ice Cave Trail and Timber Mesa Trail) today and hope the knee help up for the 10+ miles of Los Burros on Monday morning, or do my weekend's main event today. Given the location of this triplog, you know the decision I made. Good one too, as otherwise I would not have gotten back to Phoenix until after 8 p.m. Monday, due to a late start and this hike being so long (for me ... Joe or Booneman might have done laps. ;) ) So, sleepless, blistered and with aching knee, off I went.

Had hash and hashbrowns at Darbi's Cafe, as the trip was as much about trying some new restaurants as it was hiking. Good eats.

Drove past the turn in McNary and had to double back. I don't know how the road usually is, but it is the worst washboarding I have ever experienced. 5-10 mph at best, in a normal car, for all seven miles. (If I had known how bad it would be, I probably would not have gone.) :o

By the time I got to the trailhead, it was about 10 a.m. Nice temps, but sun felt much warmer, maybe because of the thinner air?

Lots of tree clearing going on throughout the whole hike, but especially between Hill 8022, Hill 8304 and Pierce Mountain. Really nice trail surface most of the way, and it showed evidence of MTBs and horses in the 48 hours since the last rain.

Very large elk darted across the trail in the saddle west of Pierce Mountain. Disappeared before I could get a picture. I waited awhile hoping for more elk, but did not see any. (It had no antlers, so I assumed it was female, and I was under the impression females tend to hang out together when not in breeding season.)

Highpoint of the normal 10-mile loop is 8300 feet, on the small ridge .8 miles north of the logging operation. By noon, it had clouded over, and thunder was in the east again. (I found out later from the motel owner, who lives in Eagar, that it was very heavy rain between Pinetop and Eagar.) No rain at all on Los Burros, though. Took my first break, and was disappointed to discover my Darbi's Blondie Bar was missing. :cry: At least I had a Circle K murderwich to get me by.

After eight miles, I arrived at the Lake Mountain split, which is also the connector trail to Four Springs Trail. I was feeling good, knee not hurting, and blister not feeling any worse. (I deliberately walked more on my toes to avoid any excess heel rub.) Since I felt so good, I decided to go up Lake Mountain, which adds about 600 feet to the AEG. In doing so, I set my personal best for high hiking elevation of 8529 feet (at the lookout). No one home, and tower fenced and camera'd. I waved. No water in the lake, which is an obvious volcanic caldera, but great views! Best flower display of the hike was along the gravel road down from the lookout.

Passing over the Hill 8022 ridge, I heard an odd sound. Then realized it was my cell phone. You get great reception out there.

Only saw humans four times the whole way: An old guy trailer camping at the trailhead, some logger/rancher types on ATVs near the logging operation, some guy with a dog and truck on the Brown Wash jeep trail, and a couple on horses going up the gravel road to the Lake Mountain lookout. (Me across wash to Dog & Truck Guy: "Howdy!!!", in the hope if he was shooting he would not think I was a deer coming up the trail.)

Finished at 3:50 p.m. Post hike BP was 129/78, pulse 120. (Scary part was it was still elevated three hours later.) Blister was quarter-sized, but felt no worse, and neither did my knee. Took 35 minutes to drive the seven miles back to McNary, showered and then dinner at Los Corrales. (Great salsa and service.)

The full loop of this hike is about 14 miles. We did the longer of the 2 shortcuts this time. We got rained on for about the last 4-5 miles but we just put on our ponchos and just kept walking. For some reason there are very few people on this beautiful trail. It's about 7 miles outside of McNary.

What a great hike. We did the shorter loop of this 14 mile round trip hike and it was beautiful. There is a longer loop to this hike which is suppose to be around 10 miles. Everything was green, it was a little overcast and a slight breeze, all which made it a perfect day for this hike. This would be a great hike in the fall when the leaves are changing. This hike starts at the end of the Los Burros campground and there were very few people on the trail.

I mountain biked this trail at the end of Sept '05 and again two weeks later. Both times with riders better than I am, but I did fine. There are two places where I had to walk the bike. One is called "Collarbone Drop" by the locals, because a guy broke his collarbone there one time during the Tour of the White Mountains. The other is a right angle downward turn over big rocks. I got a new bike after these rides, a much better bike with full suspension. I think I could ride that right angle turn now with the new bike, but I'm too chicken for Collarbone Drop! It is a very steep, short slope. There are two ways to ride it, but I saw both my friends take the right hand way. They say it's easier, not as likely to fall.

This ride is best in the dry parts of the year--late spring, early summer, early autumn. The rest of the time it is too muddy, and the locals discourage riders from tearing up the trail when it is wet. During this very dry winter it has been rideable quite a bit of the time, however.

The campground where this ride begins is very nice, and usually has empty spots. There are elk bugling in the forest in the fall--if you camp there you will hear them.

This trail connects with other trails. Get the info about this at the Lakeside Ranger Station on weekdays. If you can't go there on a weekday, call them and ask them to mail you the info in advance. Their phone # is: 928-368-5111

This somewhat retired guy and friend Jim biked this for first time. Beautiful trail. Aspen groves were most impressive. Comfortable temperature and everywhere everything was green. Had simple trail map but not compass. Took two wrong turns. One took us on Los Burros short-cut, a very, very steep trail. Started over at end of that and biked 18.2 miles in all. A very strenuous ride (and walk). Jim had severe leg cramps with about 4 miles to go. I was pretty washed out. Dog Champ was the Champ, although he was quite a bit slower for the next two days.
