Bush Hwy and Beeline Hwy Sycamore gateway
I'm pleased to announce we will have an excursion with the owner of Rattlesnake Solutions and field herpetologist Bryan Hughes! Bryan brings over a decade of experience with Arizona reptiles to share with us.
The plan is to head up Hwy 87 to Log Corral Wash and head up Log Corral Trail stopping at various washes to get out and hike to find some snakes and hopefully a Gila Monster! We may do the whole trail time permitting, stopping at Bartlett Lake for lunch.
This run is EARLY as we need to be out walking before 7 for the best chance of catching snakes or Gila Monsters getting some morning sun. HOWEVER if enough people are interested we can move this to late afternoon and hunt for them at dusk and after sundown.
Please keep in mind that I can schedule the run, schedule our expert, but the snakes may not care! With our snake expert Bryan we have a very good chance of finding these beautiful and interesting creatures in their wild and natural setting. PLEASE be aware of your surroundings and listen to Bryan's instructions AT ALL TIMES for your safety! We're there to learn and observe not harass or abuse!

This trail is not as difficult as rated though conditions can change depending on winter storm damage.
