We backpacked. The trail was very beautiful and not as hard to follow as others have stated. There was 2 tricky spots that we had to gps it. be aware, there is not alot of water on the trail. Dane creek is dry. Just past the sign that says .5 miles to buck springs cabin, there is a small stream there. I would advise filling up there as the water was amazing. Ok so for the bad. Make sure to bring a pack cover and rain poncho as it seems to have afternoon rain in the area. We wanted to hike to the Buck Springs Cabins but were unable to find them. We came to the sign that says .5 miles to the cabins and hiked further than that but never found the cabins. I am so bummed. Does anyone know where we went wrong???? please help!

The trail is open. The bathroom is closed but there is an open porta potty right next to it. I hiked the trail clockwise. See Canyon is beautiful but not very well-maintained. I felt like I was often blazing my own trail based on a small ill defined path but that could be because it hasn’t had much traffic this past few months. As mentioned, there are approximately 15+ large logs blocking the trail in various locations. Tall grass shields the trail in certain areas. Still, See Canyon was my favorite part. The 4 mile flat walk along the rim (middle section) was my least favorite. It is not very scenic, and if you cut down and follow the Rim Rd (around mile 8) the road is very sandy. Beautiful views if you veer off the trail though and walk through the campsites to the edge of the rim. I was glad I had GPS on the top as there are various trails and it could be confusing to find the correct one. The Drew Canyon trail was well marked and had many beautiful views in its own right. I don’t think the top two mile stretch is any steeper than the top two mile stretch of See Canyon so you’d be fine hiking either direction. The only benefit, in my opinion, to doing See Canyon first is I had more patience trying to locate the trail when I was fresh than when I was tired toward the end of the hike. See Canyon is also rockier. Note: If you are following the AllTrails GPS route, the short jaunt toward the rim not long after you come out of See Canyon, which I assume was a mistake on the part of the person who mapped the trail, or just a desire to go out of the way to see off the rim, is a wide flat forest service road.

HikingGreat!

Great loop hike! We followed advice and went counter-clockwise with an 8AM start and I am questioning the wisdom of that. Ended up with the sun directly overhead on the uphill, sunshade backside. Nearly "bonked". I will try it opposite direction next time, but it is a lovely hike. 9.7 miles/1900" vertical without the side trip up Granite Mountain. With that you are looking at around 13 miles and at least another 1000" vertical.

Drank my 2L and could have used more! 90 plus out there and very little shaded area.

This trail is probably best hike during cooler weather. We didn't get very far (kids were too hot and tired), but there was no tree cover, the creek was dry, and the horse flies were very bothersome. We'll come back when the weather is cooler to give it another shot.

First 30 minutes are pretty lackluster, but the rest of the trail was great! I think I found your downed tree near the end of the trail Mr. Conway, there is a worn path around the left side now. Highly recommend it, don’t let the first leg of the trail sway you, this is a neat hike without a crowd.

Richard Randall's remark from July 18, posted below, "I got lost at the end" moves me to clarify that, if he's talking about getting lost in the forest just beyond the exposed hillside section about 3.3 miles into the hike (from the dirt parking area back up on FR 87A), yes, this is a point where the trail is somewhat unclear and there aren't enough cairns erected. Making things worse, when i was last here in May 2020 coming up from Peoria/Phoenix area, i noticed a fallen tree that blocks and obscures the trail. As i recall, at that point veer LEFT around the fallen tree and proceed forward and slightly to your left (slightly downhill) and you'll soon see the trail emerge on the slope paralleling the creek. The #4 Trail will in a short distance descend further and cross the creek to the southern bank. If, however, at that fallen tree, you drift to the RIGHT around it, you may feel pulled to hike in a gently ascending path up through the forest, paralleling or away from the creek. And that's where you can get a bit lost, with no trail in sight. (That briefly happened to me on my May 2019 hike-- i hiked up the well-defined dry bed of an occasional stream for a hundred yards or so through the pine forest until i checked my bearings.) A REQUEST to anyone who hikes to that fallen-tree before i visit again (presumably next May), PLEASE ERECT SOME CAIRNS before and after that fallen tree to guide hikers back onto Trail #4. Thanks in advance!

The access road off SR-87 is closed due to fire danger. You cannot get to the trailhead.

Loved it! Recommend going CW, and starting in the morning. Got hot fast and the first half has zero shade. Bring lots of water! Beautiful scenery every step of the way!

These are PERFECT running trails. Rolling hills, barely any rocks, hard packed dirt/sand mostly. Not much shade but the sun and heat don’t bother me. My garmin said the whole trip was 15miles (I did get a bit turned around tho) loved this loop seriously. Trailhead has water. This is clearly a place a lot of bikers go but now I’ve ran 20 miles here and mainly only saw lots of bikers at the trailhead but not on the trails I ran (I also run in the heat of the day so that could contribute) only downfall with this loop is I wish alltrails had a slight list of the trails you were going to take so that you didn’t have to constantly look at the maps since there’s tons of different ways you could go all through out this loop
