Great day trip. Probably good idea to have high clearance but 4WD not usually needed.
Finished the last 1/3 of Cave Creek, all of Bloody Basin (FR269), to I-17 in the dark... in my Kia Sorento. I need to go back through int he daylight to get some photos of the view; which I imagine must be spectacular.
Finished drive today between Cave Creek Rd (FR24)', west on Bloody Basin (Fr269) to I-17. Road was in worse shape than expected. Many ruts and signs of recent erosion. Scenery is nice. Not many other vehicles, but this was a weekday in the winter so that's not a big surprise. Will do again, but will plan for more time to complete the trip.
Long ATV ride! Take extra fuel, water and proper clothing! The hot-spring is hidden down the hill, north of the sheep bridge in the reeds. Only saw one other vehicle on the way in.
