Railroad canyon,Gila Wilderness

  • This location is shown only to members

The trail starts out as a road, but large rocks at the trailhead prevents cars from driving on it. This trail is relatively flat and flanked by lots of tall trees. The trail has several easy stream crossings; whether or not there is water depends on the season and precipitation over the last several months. After about 1.75 miles, you come to a junction with trail #129 through Gallinas canyon. Remaining on the trail other canyons join the one you are in as you continue your slow pace up the hill. We can decide how far we want to go at each point on the trail.
THERE IS POISON IVEY ALONG SOME PARTS OF THE TRAIL SO PLEASE WHERE LONG PANTS, OR HIKE AT YOUR OUN RISK.
This about a 3 to 4 hour hike.
Bring a lunch and plenty of water.
This a paved road to the trailhead.
PLEASE HELP THE DRIVER WITH GAS.
Approx. 100 miles and about 1-1/2 drive.
Please have a full tank of gas before you meet us at K-mart eat breakfast and coffee before you arrive.

      Being on time is always good etiquette. And it is essential for a member to practise it to have good standing in a group that engages in any group activities. To put it simply, three words, be on time. However, things happen. If, occasionally, because of unexpected reason or reasons, somebody is running late, and that that somebody let the organizer know the situation, the guys already there on time may practise 'good etiquette' and wait. So, good etiquette is a two way street, and the middle point of the street is called "be there on time". You guys enjoy your hike.
