    Charlie Ames reviewed East Baldy Trail #95

    16 days ago

    This trail is nothing special. About a mile in is a beautiful open field where the "river" cuts through the heart of. This river is not big at all, it is maybe a small creek at best. After venturing through the meadow you will find yourself next to an incredible rock formation which you take a few switch back to get over. This leads to a field of spectacular rocks with a great view. The trail then goes back into thick forest where your calf muscles will be tested inorder to get up the mountain. The peak of Mt Baldy is on Indian reservation so it is illegal to truly summit the mountain, however, you will find a false summit near the peak where you have a decent view looking north west. Overall this trail did not impress me however the wildlife and vegetation kept it somewhat exciting.

    Charlie Ames reviewed Pine Mountain Loop Trail

    about 1 month ago

    Saw lots of wildlife such as bobcats, rattlesnakes, birds, deer and insects. A lot of fallen trees blocking the trail. The trail was not well maintained, having to literally crawl multiple times under sharp thorn bushes. With the difficult travel came great reward, never saw a single person (which is a huge plus for me). The view at the top of the mountain was breathtaking, seeing the Four Peaks on the right and Mt. Humphrey on the left and as a native Arizonian that was well worth the many thorn gashes on my arms and legs. If you plan to spend the night bring extra bug spray, I kid not this was the most bugs and spiders I have ever seen in AZ. Overall awesome trail if you don't mind roughing it.
