Stayed at Yavapai Campground and started trail from there. It was gorgeous and the fragrance of the pines was intoxicating. We only saw 1 other person on the entire 11 mile hike — perhaps because the temps got above 90. It was a bit eerie to walk through the portion where fire had burned several years ago. One thing to watch out for trail is not marked in certain areas, and you can very easily confuse a wash for portions of the trail. Luckily our GPS worked so we could access AllTrails map. I would love to come back in the springtime when everything is in bloom.
