Saulsbury Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"A day hike or backpack from Turkey Creek to the Chiricahua Crest trail. A backward look reveals Little Bull as a rounded dome with cliffs across its eastern face. Delicate spires of rock can be seen on its southern slope as the path climbs the slopes of Flys Peak.The hike begins on a jeep trail that follows Ward Creek as far as the mouth of Saulsbury Canyon. This latter ravine is quite shallow and is cloaked in pines and evergreen oaks. Check dams have been built across the wash to retain rainwater and stall floods. In the upper reaches of the canyon, the trail follows the western edge of the 1994 Chiricahua burn. Immediatelyafter the blaze, a dense carpet of lupines covered the scorched soil to the east of the trail."
