Dripping Springs Mountains
Since Turkey Creek is still closed, we are going to try another place we have wanted to visit. The Dripping Springs Valley, between the Pinal Mountains and the Dripping Springs Mountains. Meet at the Minit Market at the junction of SR77 and 177 in Winkelman at 10:30 AM. From there it is a 15 minute drive north to the trailhead at Dripping Springs Road and SR77. We plan to head up the slopes of the Pinal Mountains, exploring several abandoned mines sites and roads. We will pick a camp spot based on how warm the weather is. It is supposed to be fairly cool so we will probably camp low. The area around N 33.27452 W 110.90860 is at 4000 ft and has a lot of cool places to explore nearby.
