Greetings fellow hikers!

Two experienced Minnesota backpackers seeking recommendations on 4-day hike in Arizona September 20-24 (arriving in Phoenix Saturday AM, departing Wednesday PM). 30-40 miles. Been looking at Tonto, Superstition, Sycamore, and Red Rock, but open to all suggestions.

Must-have:
- Within 3-hour driving distance from Phoenix
- Accessible Trailhead (rental car - no extreme off-roading)
- Beautiful Arizona scenery

Nice-to-have:
- Loop hike
- Water sources Smile

Donít-want:
- Backcountry Permit lottery

Reward: will buy you a drink at establishment near trailhead

All suggestions greatly appreciated - Thank you!! Very Happy

Your ideas have merit, but have you considered the Canyon?
On the return - The Roadhouse; Bellemont, Az.

No lottery - Most certainly you can procure some itinerary for those dates. (I can help if needed)
