White Spar To Goldwater Lake Loop
EveryTrail - Find the best Hiking in Arizona
Thursday: (03/28) While camping at White Spa Campground I decided to hike over to the Goldwater Lakes.
I hiked from the campground on trail 396.
Along the way I was lucky to spot two horned lizards a different locations. One was a baby the other the biggest I've ever seen.
There was a large pond on a small stream by the trail. The water is hard to see because it is black.
Trail 396 passes by Lower Goldwater Lake about 200 feet above the lake level. The trail continues on past Upper Goldwater Lake but I exited the trail onto an unnamed trail that went down to the lake and along the edge. I stopped for lunch by the lake then returned up to Trail 396 to a connector to Trail 67 and returned home.
Trail 67 is really a road but still a nice hike. It was an eight mile hike with 2560 feet of climb and 600 feet of elevation change.
