An overnight backpack down to the Verde River to camp and fish.
5 of us headed out at about 11 on Saturday to hike down Towel Creek trail to the river. Trail is fairly underused and quite picturesque.
Trail was pretty good. Rather well marked with cairns but clearly it is little used. We saw 2 backpackers that went in about 2 miles, but after that, nobody. I like the changes in the vegetation from the top to the bottom. Lots of wildlife. We saw a peccary of about 15-20 – they were very healthy looking.
Our next idea is to get on the Verde itself and float it down a ways.
Should be good.
