This hike follows a primitive path winding along a pleasant babbling brook in gentle terrain nestled in a remote canyon. The lower canyon contains a gorge and varied rock formations. This mellow east-side entry point into the Gila Wilderness provides an increasingly rugged and remote canyon experience with each passing mile. The unsigned trail begins from the lower right (north) side of the forest camp meadow. A somewhat confusing sign pointing in the wrong direction to “Forest Trail” should be ignored. The unsigned Gila Wilderness boundary (a post, without a sign) is reached after 0.1 mile. Here you will see an old cable with iron posts to block vehicle traffic. For the first 0.7 mile, the soft dirt trail stays on the north side of the stream in the pleasant pine-forested valley.
