Great trail for a casual weekend backpacking trip. Water available when you need it, and only the final ascent of Turkey Canyon is steep enough to make you notice. Best views outside of the Gila once you're on the Crest Trail (25). Can be windy up there, however. Aspen Canyon on the descent is beautiful, and there's fresh water in Bonito Creek when you are on the homestretch.Show more
