Meet at 6:30 am (depart 6:45) at Wendy’s on Shea, just west of the Beeline Highway. We’ll carpool to the lower See Canyon trailhead east of Payson.

The loop hike begins along Christopher Creek, ascends See Canyon on a steep and rugged trail to the top of the Rim (with a short diversion along the way to See Spring), follows the top of the Rim to the Drew Trail, then descends to the Highline Trail and back to the trailhead. This route has beautiful fall foliage, including many maple trees, so bring plenty of water, lunch or snacks, electrolytes, sturdy hiking boots and (optional) your camera.

No children or dogs please. Cost to non-members is $5.
