snickering about the Tonto National Forest not having any trees. It took years, but we've figured out you don't need trees to have a forest.
This trail is very well known with dozens of people hiking it every day. I was very surprised to see the narrow trail heading north per the map, but it had seen some horse traffic (including road apples) in the last couple days.
I wanted to save some miles for our visit to the Good Sam Phoenix Rally where they'll have bunches and bunches of RV's to tour.
