|where||Mogollon Rim – See Canyon / Christopher Creek|
If you would like to escape the triple digits of the desert only for a day, please
join us in Mogollon Rim country for the See Canyon hike.
The first two miles of the See Canyon Trail are relatively easy, crisscrossing Christopher Creek several times as it heads north to the Rim. Shade is plentiful along the creek, thanks to a dense forest cover of pine, bigtooth maple, box elder, velvet ash, and Gambel oak, as well as aspens near the top of the trail.
Two miles in the trail begins a steep climb to the top of Mogollon Rim and FR 300 (the Rim Road) and becomes a little less defined as it nears the top. We’ll stop for a lunch break at the top of the trail along the Rim. Come prepared for several wet creek crossings. After lunch, if we have enough time and energy, we may opt to check out the spur trail to See Spring on the way back to the trailhead.

• At least 3 liters of water
