Mexican Mountain to Spring Canyon

Mexican Mountain to Spring Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"There is a distinct trail to follow along the wash bottom. After about 0.25 mile the canyon bottom has light seasonal water. The trail occasionally crosses the small stream, but it’s easy to stay dry. The wash winds its way upcanyon with 1000+-foot cliffs rising high above.

As you look upcanyon, you’ll soon see an arch high up in the top of the cliffs to the left (northwest.) From here it’s another 0.5 mile to the confluence of Nates Canyon and Spring Canyon. For a shorter hike you can turn around at the petroglyphs. Overnight trips include an opportunity to explore further up these canyons. Several dryfalls are up Nates Canyon, and another arch is up Spring Canyon."

This was a great trail with tremendous payoff. The hike itself is pretty easy, although finding the trail can be a bit difficult (on the way in, there were no cairns and missed a turn and ended up bushwhacking). Camped at the airfield and loved all of the petroglyph panels nearby. Hiking in Spring Canyon was very difficult with all of the vegetation, but there was a recent flood that had flattened most of it. Since it was New Years, we were able to walk on the frozen river a lot of the way.
