Wolf Creek Trail

Wolf Creek Trail

Yesterday we hiked a portion of Wolf Creek Loop Trail #384. The trailhead is .4 of a mile on County Road 101 beyond where the pavement ends from the Senator Highway. We crossed Wolf Creek and hiked clockwise through ponderosa pines, scrub oaks, and granite boulders. Where the trail intersects the Hassayampa River, we saw a sign for Payoff Springs. Four deer crossed the trail in front of us and we observed the largest doe eyeing from a camouflaged position. At one point the trail uses Forest Road 74. Where it diverged we stayed on it to the Lower Wolf Creek Campground. We were impressed with the stone-based picnic tables. We returned to our car on County Road 101. We hiked a little more tha three miles. In the future we intend to hike the other half of the Wolf Creek Loop Trail.
