Over the years, I've managed to make at least one trip somewhere just about every week forever. Some for caving, some for tinaja quests, some for escape, some for Bed and Breakfasts, and some plain old day hikes. I thought I might compile a list of nearby Gila Valley day hikes here. Some of which even the natives have never heard of. Since a very few of these are rather sensitive, I will leave all specific access details out on everything. You should be able to find out where most of these are with a little further research on your own. Topo maps can be found here and aerial photos here. I've personally visited nearly all of these sites at least once. While many are close in, a very few of the more intriguing locations may involve an hour's drive or so. Please report your own additions, corrections, present conditions, or comments here.

Guru's Lair: Gila Valley Day Hikes

Gila Valley Day Hikes 1 - 13:
FREY MESA FALLS -- Waterfalls, rock scrambling, fishing. RED KNOLLS -- Has many dozens of pseudokarst pits. These are very easy to rig -- just push the bolts in with your thumb. McENARY TUNNEL - One of many local investment scams. This one to tap Mount Graham for water. SAFFORD GRIDS -- Spectacular pre historic ag structures. Possibly used to farm agaves for mescal. SANCHEZ CCC CAMP -- Amazingly close in "ghost town" seems virtually unknown. Buildings, trails, oil change ramps. TENSION STATION -- Much of the Mount Graham Tramway is very hard to access. But the first tension station is an easy hike with minimal 4WD. CACHE CAVE -- Small rock shelter that once held a spectacular collection of ancient basketry and other artifacts. BONITA CREEK - Nearby wet stream has indian ruins, birds, hiking, and history RINCON SPRING - Mile long dayhike gives sweeping valley views. Very seldom traveled. Excellent winter trip. Go north from Marijilda crossing. DEAD CAMEL PLACE - Footprints of paleo animals and other paleontology. FORT GRANT ICE CAVES -- No longer have any ice in them because of global warming. In spheroidally eroded granite. GOAT HILL SITE -- Indian ruin on the summit of a small knoll. Dating from the 1300's. Other ruins nearby. ZEOLITE MINES -- Thin layers of minerals

with an incredible variety of catalytic, filtering, and similar uses.

Gila Valley Day Hikes 14 - 26:
GILLARD HOT SPRING -- One of the hottest anywhere at 180 degrees. Mixes rapidly with the cooler Gila River. CARTER BOX -- Secret hidden pools here once held native fish. I am not sure what our drought conditions have done recently MORENCI CRYSTAL CAVE - Several hundred feet of passage, typically with a lake blocking some easier access. MOUNT GRAHAM SAWMILL - Largest and most important sawmill on the mountain. Both the tramway and the flume started here. HIDDEN GILA ACCESS -- Obscure ag roads lead to an amazingly pristine river stretch halfway between Pima and Thatcher. ASH CREEK - Nice picnic area with a running stream. Flume and mountain access trails further up. MOUNT GRAHAM OBSERVATORY -Incredible technology. Guided tours only from Discovery Park. Seasonal. APACHE BOX -- A favorite hiking area of BLM employees just over the NM border. Nearby Zen monastery tours. STOCKTON & GILLEPSIE WASHES -Nice picnic areas. Through hikes down stream are easy but only seldom done. HOT WELL DUNES - BLM hot tubs, sand dunes, off road vehicle paradise. Enforced dress code. BEAR BASIN -- The most obscure trail access on the North side of the Grahams. May have water and tinajas higher up.

SAN CARLOS FALLS -- Spectacular but difficult canyoneering on the res. Rec permit required and enforced. ALLEN RESEVOIR -- Failed flood control dam is seldom visited. Makes for interesting close in exploration.

Gila Valley Day Hikes 27 - 39:
OAK GROVE CANYON -- Seldom visited and little known feeder canyon to Aravaipa offers a wet stream, cliffs, riparian. Access presently limited. GOAT WELL DETENTION -- Spectacular San Simon erosional features caused by extreme long term overgrazing. CUNNINGHAM ROADS -- old logging trails atop Mt. Graham are closed to vehicles but offer superb and easy hiking and mountain biking. SANTA TERESA ROCK CLIMBING -World class climbing granite is little known and seldom visited. Klondyke Wall is particularly challenging. MARIJILDA PICNIC AREA -- Small pools are perfect for kiddies. Lots of big trees, but fewer because of recent flood damage. MORENCI MINE TOUR -- Commercial tours of one of the largest copper mines in the world. Reservations required. YELLOWSTONE DAM -- small catchment in scenic area has an unusual flying buttress architecture. OLD MORENCI BRIDGE -- Restored historic bridge on the backcountry byway is also a shady picnic area and a Gila River whitewater put in. WEST END MINES -- Historic district

DEADMAN CANYON -- Offers several waterfalls, mid-route access to the Round the Mountain trail, and an irrigation canal that runs along the highest point on its ridge. EAGLE CREEK BAT CAVE -- Early guano mining combined with seasonal bat flights. F-M permit recommended. OLD MARBLE QUARRY -- Historic artifacts in Emigrant Canyon include steam engines and other equipment. Also rappelling and huge stone blocks. SAN SIMON BARRIER DAM -- Erosion control structure quickly filled with mud the instant it was built. Proves that one of the indicator species of overgrazing is cows. DANKWORTH PONDS -- One time warm spring fish farm offers hiking and day picnicking, trails, and shady escape.

from the Sunset area. WILD RASPBERRIES -- Late August in most any old burn area on the top of Mount Grahm. Also prickley pears and commercial apples later and lower. EAGLE CREEK HOT SPRING -- There are several of these. The nicest is like soaking inside a giant geode. A F-M mine access permit is recommended. PIMA BADLANDS -- Huge area to the west is largely roadless. Interesting geology full of nooks and crannies of one sort or another. ARAVAPIA CANYON - World class riparian wilderness stream.

for hiking and mountain biking. DUTCH HENRY TRAIL -- The only eastern trail off the mountain. Ends up in Stockton Wash. BLACKJACK CAVE -- Large shelter cave in the underappreciated Big Lue Mountain range near the NM border. HANNA HOT SPRING -- One of the most remote in AZ now needing a 14 mile round trip hike. Check nearby Little Blue Box and the columnar hex basalt a short trip upcanyon from the spring. FORT BOWIE -- Old military fort is a National Monument. Normal access involves a one mile hiking trail. NOON CREEK -- The first shady picnic spot on the mountain. Two miles further up is Jacobson Canyon with just enough of a small stream for kiddy puddling. EL CAPITAN CANYON -- My favorite narrow Escabrosa Limestone canyon where you can almost touch both walls at once. Minimum trip size: four, at least one of whom should be rope qualified. No dogs. DEER CREEK CABIN -- Trailhead for several NE Galiuro trails that include Kennedy Peak and others. WHITLOCK HOT LAKE -- Declining water tables have left this artesian source less than it once was. But still an interesting and very offbeat trip. WEST PEAK LOOP -- Start at the lookout tower and work your way down John's Canyon Ridge and Bellows Canyon to the old ranger station and spring. CEDAR SPRINGS -- Popular family and religious retreat gathering place. Drought has reduced the springs from spectacular to the barest hint of a seep. JUAN MILLER -- Primo access to the Lower Blue River country along with some fascinating geology.

Gila Valley Day Hikes 79 - 91:
FISHERMAN'S POINT -- Seldom visited area just into New Mexico offers fishing, swimming, impressive cliffs. WHITLOCK CAVES & RUINS -- Nearly inaccessible on east face of mountain. See the topo maps for details. SOUTH BUFORD CANYON -- The "back way" to Aravaipa is perfect for mountain biking and remote hiking. UPPER SAN FRANCISCO -- Mine road above Clifton leads to caves, swimming, hot springs, and Blue River confluence. McEUEN RUIN -- One of very few local large rock shelters inside a cave. Access restricted. GRANT CREEK - Very difficult hike involves steep trail. The falls themselves demand ropework and canyoneering skills. STOCKTON PASS AREA -- Besides picnic and camping areas, offers access to Shake Springs trail and routes south through upper Hog Canyon. HIDDEN TREASURE PARK -- Obscure rough trails lead to very private camping on flowing but tiny Big Creek. Plus alternate foot access to the Grant Hill area. REDFIELD CANYON -- The "other" wet stream in the Galiuros is my favorite. Private land access can be avoided by the longer Jackson Cabin approach. RUG ROAD TO PARSONS -- While this is a mesmerizingly awful world class jeep trail, day hiking to Parsons Grove makes for a very reasonable all day foot trip. THE GREASEWOODS -- Plenty of hiking opportunities, especially via the Wood Canyon road. Other approaches are from

the Jernigan Ranch or the Ten Ranch. GUTHRIE PEAK -- Antenna farm offers sweeping views of the Gila Valley and much of Southeastern Arizona. DAY MINE AREA -- Seasonal wet streams, oak woodland, solitude. Access starts just north of Fort Thomas. Do NOT try to return via Markham Creek! 4wd tracks do not connect.

Gila Valley Day Hikes 92 - 104:
BATTLE MOUNTAIN -- The actual location of this Apache-U.S. Calvary skirmish ranged from Cedar Springs to K-H Butte. The injuns won this one 4-0. TRAMWAY ACCESS -- The best areas demand extreme effort. These do include the high towers, the escarpment leap, Alabam Point, and fourth transfer station. HOOKER HOT SPRINGS -- Aka the Muleshoe Ranch. Interpretive hikes and rentable Nature Conservancy casitas. LADYBUG PEAK -- Stunning views plus seasonal namesake insects. Gives access to Dutch Henry, Bear Canyon, and the actual and quite steep Ladybug trail. SPRING CANYON -- Little known and seldom visited birding area north of the Mesquite Bosque. LITTLE DRAGOON ARCH -- One of the larger natural stone arches in SE Arizona. Bushwacking required for access. Can be seen from I-10. Sort of. FREEMAN FLAT -- Very close in area is an offroad favorite. Includes erosional canyons, ruins, and old CCC water diversion projects. P RANCH MINE -- One of very few mines in the largely unmineralized Grahams. Also nearby is a very early irrigation canal.

TOPPY'S CAVE -- Huge shelter cave on the eastern slope of upper Bonita Creek. Steep hike off a difficult 4WD route. TANQUE -- Little remains at this railroad site that once provided water for steam engines. Alternate way to Hot Well Dunes. COPPER CANYON -- Old mining district at the far end of the Rug Road 4WD route. Wet stream, riparian, anglo ruins. SAN JOSE HOT WELL -- Yet another local hot artesian water source. OK Picnic spot is not really swimmable or soakable. TURTLE MOUNTAIN -- Long route gives possible mine-free alternate access to the lower Eagle Creek area.

Gila Valley Day Hikes 105 - 117:
SHINGLE MILL CANYON -- Site of the original toll road up the Grahms. Now vehicle impassible in seven places. Also gives access to much of the Tramway. WINGS OVER WILLCOX -- Annual January birding event on the Playa celebrates Sandhill Crane flyway. SAND TANK -- The primary eastern Santa Teresa access point to cross the range or access Pinaccle Ridge climbing. SOUTHERN GILA BOX -- Access roads South of the river are much less used. A reasonable 4wd route near San Jose; a challenging one down Deadman Canyon off the Back Country Byway. THE ROAD TO NOWHERE -- A "new" road was started up the Grahams by prison labor, stalled when funding did. It is not clear how or where both ends were going to meet. THE BLUE PONDS -- Popular tweenybopper party site south of Daley Estates. Lakes

are apparently no longer full or maintained. Prehistoric grids and roasting pits nearby. As is an artesian warm tub. ARCADIA TRAIL -- One of the easiest of Grahm Mountain trails goes from Shannon to Arcadia. But avoid wandering off into super rugged Upper Marijilda canyon. BACK COUNTRY BYWAY -- Steep dirt alternate route to Morenci offers 21 miles of access to hiking, whitewater, trains, kiosks cinder pits, history, ranches, and vistas. THATCHER SEWER PONDS - An unlikely but popular birding spot. Sometimes are frequented by Great Blue Herons, by far our classiest local bird. THE OLD TUNNELS -- Abandoned railroad route on lower San Francisco river included these plus several 360 degree climbing loops. TWILIGHT AREA -- Underappreciated and easily accessed picnic and camping area above Turkey Creek. The other end of the "no middle" road to and from nowhere. BENEATH FRYE DAM -- Western fork off the Deadman Canyon road leads up and under the resevoir in an interesting riparian canyon. Watch out for rattlesnakes! WEBB PEAK -- No longer used but hiker accessible lookout tower in the top center of the Grahams. Sweeping views.

Gila Valley Day Hikes 118 - 130:
OLIVER TRAIL -- Very remote canyon in one of the wildest parts of the Gila Montains on the Left Fork of Markham Creek. Note that upper and lower Markham 4WD tracks do NOT connect! WATCHIBLE WILDLIFE PLATFORM -- Treetop level intrepretive site is handicapped accessible. Near the junction of Bonita Creek and the Gila. HARRIS CAMP CANYON -- Eminently hikable

and mountain bikable tracks just south of Tollgate Pass. Deepening canyon looks interesting on topos. TURKEY CREEK RUIN -- A second cliff dwelling inside a cave. BLM interpretive site upcanyon from Arivaipia. TABLE MOUNTAIN -- Sweeping views and early mine historic artifacts just off the legendary and world class 4WD Rug Road. You can't get there from here. JOHNNY CREEK -- Interesting area on the far side of back of beyond. Mining activity may limit loop trips. Approach from Solomon Pass. PELONCILLO WILDERNESS -- Area west of the Lordsburg Playa and northeast of Bowie offers mountain sheep, remote hiking, vista peaks. Some access restrictions. BEAR SPRINGS TRAIL - Easternmost southern trail off the Grahams steeply goes through many life zones. Car shuttle advised. OLD BANANA FARM - Yet another Gila Valley scam just above the Thatcher Diversion dam. Close-in riparian and river access still recovering from a major fire. BACK ROUTE TO MUD SPRINGS -- Little known and seldom explored impassible jeep trail west from the Frey Mesa Road makes for quiet winter hiking. BLACK HILLS ARCH -- Smaller natural arch in the Pima Box Canyon north of Fort Thomas. A five mile round trip. SHEEP TANK --Small resevoir two miles east off the Frey Mesa road makes for a close in and easy picnic lunch site. Frye Creek is alternately diverted through here when it is flowing.

ADAMS FLAT -- Waterfalls and rock scrambling area above Engle Orchard in Jacobson Canyon. Seasonal flow. BONITA CEROMONIAL CAVE Site of a one time stash of very early indian artifacts. A beautiful riparian area with flowing stream. CHESLEY FLAT -- Superb north views via easy hike to Grandview Peak. Also gives you top access to the remote and difficult Blair Canyon Trail. CAVE CREEK MYSTERY - Cavers have found nothing in this small canyon between Deadman and Frey in gniess. Why was it named by who? "RINGCONE" TANK -- The name likely started out as "Rincon". Makes for an interesting winter offtrail hike destination via Cottonwood Wash or Goathill Trail.

Gila Valley Places to Best Avoid:
We might complement our above lists of Gila Valley day hikes with this list of places to avoid that you will NOT want to visit.. SPENAZUMA MINE -- 1900's gold mining scam is a private working ranch on which visitors are strongly discouraged. ARIVAIPA CANYON -- There is an eastern access problem caused by a locked gate from a few-chips-shy-of-a-full-board landowner. TOP OF MT GRAHAM -- Red squirrel refugium access closed by the Bureau

of sports fisheries and wildlife, among other agencies. Trailhead access to some northern trails are blocked and prohibited. EDEN HOT SPRINGS -- Once hippy paradise is now part of a working cattle ranch. Apparently large group reservations remain possible on an advance fee basis. Subject to availability. FREEPORT MCMORAN -- Due to copper mine development, many access points north to the Gila Mountains now have locked gates, guardhouses, or are otherwise restricted. THATCHER HOT WELL -- Has been plugged with concrete over a nudes-vs-prudes squabble. You still can visit, but there is nothing there. BEAR SPRINGS -- Old hippy commune and artesian spring site seems to have locked access gates and very little left. May be under new private development. MT. GRAHAM OBSERVATORY -- While scheduled tours and individual invitees are welcome, trespassers will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law by an aggressive 24/7 onsite police force. THE LOWER COALFIELDS -- Arizona's "other" coal mining area lies on the res in the mineral strip. Most access is strongly discouraged. The coal is apparently of little commercial value. Otherwise, it would have been stolen off the indians long ago. GUTHRIE -- One time ghost town and train watering station is now a group of ranchettes, complete with "Neighborhood Watch" signs. BLM GLYPTODONT SITE -- This scientific paleo fossil research area in the San Simon River basin remains access restricted. CARPENTER'S CAVE -- Between the ranch and res access hassles and the technical climb, this tiny shelter cave is not worth visiting. TRAMWAY PIMA BASE STATION -- This appears to have been recently sold and seems to be private property under development. The two story duck blind is somewhat of a mystery.

Guru's Lair: Gila Valley Day Hikes

WATSON WASH HOT WELL -- Now sealed by BLM over wild parties, drugs, shootings, fires, and nudes-versus-prudes issues. RES ACCESS -- There are all sorts of recent horror stories over visits to the San Carlos indian reservation. Ranging from gang intimidation to shakedowns to extreme permit enforcement to outrageous fines. But their casino will still be happy to take your money. WINTER ON THE MOUNTAIN -- Mount Graham access is closed during winter to vehicles beyond Shannon Campground. Skiers, snowmobiles, and hikers are usually permitted.
