I am hiking the Horton Creek trail on Saturday, October 20th. Although I have hiked it many times during the summer, I have never hiked it in the fall. I heard the fall colors are very impressive. Meet me at 9:00 AM, in the parking lot near Target, off of Shea and route 87. We'll carpool up to the trailhead, which is about 16 miles east of Payson.
Distance: 7 miles round trip
Elevation Gain: 1200 feet
Bring a picnic lunch for the end of the trail. After the hike, we'll go into Payson for dinner. This is a dog-friendly hike. Make sure you dress appropriately. The temperatures are in the mid 60's during the day and mid 40's at night, at this time of year.
