Hiking Arizona's Cactus Country

Beautiful hike up Scheelite Canyon but the trails near the crest are impossible to follow (little use, no maintenance and lots of illegals establishing their own trails). To get down to Sawmill Canyon we had to bushwhack all the way down from crest and intercepted the canyon well below the spring.
Also, the Boy Scout Cabin where Sawmill and Garden intersect has been removed.
Because of the bushwhacking (very steep and very brushy) it is a long, tough hike but even in a very dry August the flowers are incredible!
