Beautiful trail! Saw lots of wildlife including a herd of elk, a little black bear, and a white tail deer. Trail is marked pretty well. GPS not needed but recommended. Overall, it was a great trip!
This is a beatiful and somewhat easy trip. Me and my two sons (12 year olds) did on a 3 day weekend. The trail was difficult to find at times and I strongly recommend a GPS with waypoints loaded. Otherwise the Fred Haught Portion of the Trail (part of Arizona trail) is absolutely gorgeous. Weather was 75-80 degrees partly cloudy. Water was plentiful but definately required filtration. This trail has cool historic meaning. I highly recommend this easy trip.
This is a must do trip... the daytime highs were in the 60s, the nights offered perfect sleeping weather high 30s. Many of the aspens were just past peek, but the brilliant reds offered by the maples more then made up for that. There was an abundance of wildlife, we saw several heards of whitetails throughout our late morning hikes, and even had a heard watch us eat breakfast from accross the stream. I highly recommend this trip for those searching for an enjoyable weekend trip.
