A couple friends and I backpacked out on the wilderness of rocks trail and hammock camped far off the trail. We took the Mint Springs trail back to summerhaven and were surprised at how beautiful it was compared to the wilderness of rocks trail. This trail was covered in tall grass (reaching our necks in some places) and covered in wild flowers in the spring. After monsoons a nice creek flows across the trail in some parts. I would definitely backpack this trail again instead of the wilderness of rocks trail.
