Parking can be a bit tricky so be aware. However, there is a spot just before the entrance to Mulshoe ranch that the property owner allows campers to stay in the wash. Park there and walk to the trailhead at Bass Canyon. Hike through Bass and continue west at the confluence of Bass and Hookers Hot Spring Canyon. There's no trail there, but there's plenty of water and wildlife. If you don't want to hike through the canyon, the pipeline road runs adjacent, which can be used on the way back as well.Show more

Park at the Sycamore Campground and head back down the road to the clearly marked trailhead Mormon Canyon Ridge. The trail dips briefly before beginning to ascend. The trail is rocky and has small branches growing into the trail in places, but is clear and can easily be navigated without GPS. The ascent includes beautiful views of the Sulphur Springs Valley, Dragoons, Dos Cabezas, and neighboring mountains. Some signs have been destroyed by fire, but the sign at the top of the trail is intact. From here, you could continue up to the peak, or you would double back very briefly to find Mormon Canyon Trail which descends toward the river. There are many, many trees fallen across this section of the path and beyond. A detailed map or GPS is sometimes necessary to confirm the trail down to the river. Once at the river the trail follows closely until it clearly branches out to the road where you can walk down to the Sycamore Campground.Show more
