    Ash Creek Trail: Safford

    Good day:

    Looking at doing the Ash Creek run from the mountain down to Safford. I would appreciate any reports on recent trail conditions if available. Thanks so much.

    I think Shilling is the last person on here that rode Ash Creek, prolly last year. I would anticipate BC conditions with blowdown since it's not exactly a high-use trail.

    The entire north side of the mountain burned last summer, including 100% of this trail. Not sure if it is open for access at this point, but I'm sure that no-one has been through since the burn. I rode it prior to the fire last year and it was on par with CDO on Mt. Lemmon as far as difficulty, though a lot more overgrown so some route finding was involved. I am sure it is unrecognizable now..

    Thanks for the information. Looks like this is a likely no go.

    Took a bit of digging on the Coronado NF site to find current info, but it looks like the top of Mt. Graham is closed until further notice. Ash Creek trail is specifically called out in the closure order as a no go..
