Hike report for Thursday, May 12, 2022


Six people and one nice dog met up to hike this week.We drove up to Rustler Park and began hiking up the Crest trail and over a saddle to the Rock Creek/Bootlegger trails.There is some confusion (on my part) about the names of each segment of trail, but 4 of us hiked down trail #257 (two turned back at the saddle).

There had been some recent work on this trail - cut logs, thank you!We will someday (soon) have to assemble a crew to do tread work on this stretch, or I imagine it will disappear.It was slow going - very narrow, steeply sloped and a little nerve-racking. Still: beautiful views, and some interesting vegetation.


Once we got to the saddle with the big Juniper, we went down towards Rock Creek about a third of a mile, enjoying some time in the forest and hiking on pine needles.

We didn’t go too far down (knowing our halfway point was up, up, up) so we turned around and came up trail # 259 which was in pretty good shape.We had lunch at beautiful Bootlegger saddle, then made our way back along the Crest trail, also in good condition.

Next week, we plan to hike up the Greenhouse trail at least to the Winn Falls overlook - some can hike further up if we have enough cars.It will be nice if we have several people with 4-wheel drive vehicles so we can start at the trailhead and avoid walking up the road.Meet at Silver Peak trailhead at 8:00 AZ time, 9:00 NM.
