Clear Creek Trail across Tonto Platform

Sunday, May 3

The Clear Creek Trail continues along the edge of Granite Gorge and then for several miles along the Tonto Platform. At one point, most of our group lost the trail where it crossed a dry wash and hiked about a mile up the dry wash before realizing they were lost. Since Carola was on point when it happened, they decided to call it "Crayola Canyon". Even though the hike was mostly along level ground, the heat made it the most grueling day of our whole trip.
