Hike the Telephone Ridge trail in Arizona.
There are several routes that enter into beautiful Chevelon canyon. This is a quick route that provides just enough exercise to feel you earned the rest along the creek.
The only tricky part about this hike is the start. There are two dirt roads and several faint trails that leave the parking area. Although there is a hiking sign with an arrow, the arrow is not clear in pointing you in the correct direction. Facing the hiking sign, you should take the dirt road about 30 yards to it's left. Do not take the road that is next to the 'End FR119' sign. The latter is a trail to a campsite, which goes to a lookout of Chevelon canyon, but not much else.
From the true trail, the route finding is not done yet. About 250 ft down the trail, look to your left where a single track trail marked by cairns appears. This is easy to miss, but the dirt road quickly disappears if you miss this turnoff (marked 004 on the map). Simply backtrack to the trail, which heads towards the canyon wall.
From here, the trail is easy to follow all the way down to Chevelon creek. The trail switchbacks along a burned ridgeline, providing easy views of the canyon, but not much shade. After a mile of total hiking, you'll reach the bottom of the canyon. Your reward is a picture perfect campsite and peaceful Chevelon creek.
When ready, return the way you came.
