A group of us will meet Saturday at Lowe's (Higley Rd & US 60) and work out shuttles. We will need to leave vehicles at Carney Springs Trailhead Saturday for our shuttle back on Sunday. We'll start the hike up Siphon draw on Lost Dutchman side. We will then follow the ridge line and exit back at Carney springs. This is an all day hike that is among the toughest in the state.
Plan is to car camp at Lost Dutchman State Park Saturday night, then start our hike Sunday morning at 7am. If you don't want to camp, then you're welcome to meet at lost dutchman in the morning to start the hike.
