wear your sunblock!

Fun hike with a great view. Last bit before peak is a little rough. Watch for cacti! :(

Good little hike that varies in length depending on how long you you want to go.

We are new to hiking. This is the longest we've hiked and it was amazing! Not much traffic. Great workout!

This is a very nice, groomed trail easy to walk any time of day. There is a short trail of about a mile around the lake and a longer 2.2 mile loop with park benches. At the back end of the trail is a little waterfall and creek which is a pleasant place to rest and snack. We saw an osprey dive bombing fish in the lake and heard bugling elk.

A sign at the trailhead says the trail is closed; I hiked it anyway as it is a 30 minute drive from the highway. Nice and easy hike.

glorious view

The Gila is Sooo nice, hot springs, camping, river crossings, canyons, wildlife.

Very nice area need to us grudging grave trail to access west fork many river crossings and a cliff dwelling

Very nice hike, at this time-west fork trail is only accessible by this route. Look for cave dwelling at about mile 3, many river crossings and wildlife, basically level terrain
