Gila 3 day 2 night trip on 03/27/2012 18:53:04 MDT Print View

Hello everyone,

I am looking at doing a 3 day 2 night backpacking trip at the Gila with a friend of mine. I am a little new at this but my buddy has been on a few. I have done lots of hiking but never really something like this. So far I know that I would like to start a the Emery Pass area and make a loop back that will take 3 days 2 nights. The only things I would say are a must for the trip is few contact with others (city hiking gives me enough of that lol),water crossings and GREAT views. Can anyone help me out on some good trails to follow or paths to take that will give us the 3 days 2 nights out and bring us back to emery pass?

I really like the looks of trail #79 but it does not make a loop.

Cameron, I'll try and shoot you some ideas later this evening or tomorrow when I'm home and can look at the map. Lots of loop options for 3 days.

Eugene,

Any luck on 3 or 4 day loop trails?
