    fall is an amazing place in AZ. fortunately for us, we can camp anywhere from 800' at the colorado in Yuma to 12,637' on humprheys.

    a good compromise would be perennial stream, 6000 elevation, low chance of traffic noise.
    any number of areas would provide those 3 requirements.

    id say just to keep things fair, easy to reach (via passenger car) and centralized in the state, we should do West Clear Creek.
    Maxwell trail is short at .75 mile but we can explore up and downstream, fly fish, luxury camp and have a hella good time with very little effort.

    I am not sure how much time I have available to "grab the bull by the horns". But, I am willing to help things along. Here is a straw-man proposal just for discussion.

    It sounds like people are open to Tewa's idea regarding the Maxwell Trail on West Clear Creek. It also seems that although Dehoja prefers Oak Creek for many good reasons, that he has kindly offered to consider alternatives. In light of that, could we agree on the Maxwell Trail on West Clear Creek; for all of the good reasons that Tewa expressed in his post?

    If so, I suggest a two night hang during one of the following "Friday/Sunday" periods; October 8-10, October 15-17, or October 22-24. Obviously, if people are constrained on time, they could stay only one night or make a day trip to see the group since we will be so close to the trail head.

    If we hike out Sunday morning at a reasonable hour, we could make the Beeline in Payson for lunch.

    Not meaning to confuse things. But, if even if we do the Maxwell Trail hang; there is also nothing preventing an Oak Creek hang from being organized in addition to whatever might occur at West Clear Creek... just thinking out loud.

    Feedback please....

    I add my vote with LongBow to do the hang at West Clear Creek, Maxwell Trail #37. More trail info and photos are available on other websites.

    I vote for either October 15-17 or 22-24. These are both good weekends for me, especially if we can book it now!

    I threw together a quick topo that can be viewed at MyTopo.com, and directions from Google.

    Thank you Dejoha.

    OK, maybe it is time to call the question...

    For all of those interested in a "West Clear Creek - Arizona Fall Hang", will you please indicate your availability for the dates in October suggested by Dejoha in his recent post?

    I am hoping that one more round of feedback should allow us to understand if we are at critical mass in terms of participation and perhaps to select a final date.

    If this trip works out, that will be great. It should be an exceptional time as described by Tewa. But, please let's not feel any pressure. This post is just intended to get things scheduled so people that want to go can set their calendars.

    If you are a HF user in Arizona or outside of the State and interested, please indicate yes or no regarding the trip with date preferences as applicable. That way we will know if a proper opportunity has been provided to everyone to consider the logistics of the proposed Arizona Fall Hang in October. If we don't hear from "the regulars" in Arizona I will volunteer to send some PMs just to ensure that people are aware.

    Tewa, if you have a means to pass the word to those that you regularly hike with, will you please do so? Thank you.

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum but if all Az rez are invited this Payson dweler is in for it. I actualy just lost a coin flip for this trail or bear canyon last weekend. I've wanted to hike and stay at clear creek for a while now and this seems like a great oportunity. 'm open for both weekends and can show as early as friday so long as nothing happens between now and then count me in.
    I LIVE FOR THE DAY AFTER TWO DAYS BEFORE TOMORROW.
