I have two published hiking guides from Menasha Ridge Press.
Much of what is really worth discovering in the Tonto National Forest can only be reached by foot. Wilderness boundaries and the sheer ruggedness of the terrain mandate that visitors get out of the car and lace up their boots to explore the numerous high peaks, deep gorges, babbling river beds, near silent deserts, hundred year old mining camps and thousand year old native American settlements scattered widely across this vast national forest. Winding through all of these rugged wonders are more than 900 miles of trails. This guide follows the best of them, representing each of the Tonto’s unique areas.
The Tonto National Forest The Forest Service website. For trail info start here. HikeAZ.com These site, and the folks assosciated with it were extremely helpful in compiling this guide. If you're hiking anywhere in Arizona, check it out on this site first.
Each hike features an individual trail map, elevation profile, and at-a-glance information, helping readers quickly find the perfect trip. Sized to fit in a pocket, the book’s detailed trail descriptions will help readers find their way on and off the trail. Driving directions and GPS trailhead coordinates will help with navigating the myriad of unnamed roads. The trails covered range from those best suited to the novice, families, experienced hikers, or backpackers.
