The trail is at the end of the cul de sac. After less than 5 minutes I lost the trail completely. No trail markings as far as I can see. Lots of foot tall grass and places for snakes to hide.

Scouting around for a new route down to Copper Basin Wash. Old route is impassable and chocked up with scrub oak and Manzanita.

Beautiful views off both sides of ridge, Copper Basin on the west, Prescott on the east. Current map for this page is incorrect. My trail capture is in the right place.

There was a lot of blown down trees from the recent snow.
