I chose to backpack in the canyon instead of on the top. We started at willow springs lake boat ramp and came out at the south end of chevelon canyon lake. This is one of AZs prettiest places. It's hard as hell and we logged almost 40 miles from end to end. The scenery is gorgeous. Water is available for about 95% of the trail. I say trail but mostly it was game trails we navigated. Lots of water crossings too! I would definitely do it again.
