This long loop samples the best of the Gila mountains, meadows, brooks, high pine parks, volcanic tuff, and serrated ridges. The views from the isolated apex of Granite Peak are sensational. This route through the central highlands of the Gila avoids major stream bottoms so it’s a good choice when high water levels make river crossings dangerous or impossible.
