Trail suggestions for 4 nights in Gila Wilderness on 05/05/2009 09:30:06 MDT Print View

At the end of the month, I’m planning on spending four nights in the Gila Wilderness and am looking for route recommendations. I’ll be taking an older dog so I won’t be booking it through the woods or covering a large number of miles each day. I’d say 6-8 miles/day is probably what I’ll shoot for.

The two points of interest I know I want to hit are Jordan Hot Springs and Turkey Creek Hot Springs. Not sure how far apart these are, but I’m willing to split up my stay into two mini-trips to incorporate both destinations. Any trail suggestions?

No Suggestions per say, but I just got back from the Gila and can say that Jordan hot springs are luke warm - tepid. Once you find the right hot springs in turkey creek, they are awesome. The two are somewhat far from each other, but I bet you could do it in about 4 days with the mileage you are talking about.

What did you mean by find the right hot spring in Turkey Creek?
