Is it doable in a day??

Absolutely. You have to in-and-out it because the canyon passes through a wilderness area near the Bullhead City side (which is why you have to do it from the other side) but it's doable.

Can anyone recommend a trail similar in length and technical difficulty as Bitter Springs? Something easy that can take all day if I wanted.

I already have Wheelers Pass planned for possibly tomorrow. Depends on how my night goes. I'm looking for a trail for Wednesday or a future date.

Mormon Wells is really easy and long, something like 42 miles long. Other then that I have been looking at one that leaves Kyle Canyon before Harris Spring Rd and heads up into the eastern part of the Spring Mtns.

Great minds think alike!

Yet another ... this was where you drop into the canyon. Easier to the left, harder to the right.

Mormon Well, isn't that around the Hidden Forest cabin? I think I saw that on the sign. Anyone have coordinates to the start and finish line?

Thanks so much, Davidson. So, if I'm up to it, tomorrow will be Wheelers and Wednesday will be Mormon Well. I think I had that trail planned last year, but it was after a rain and I didn't want to try a new trail after a rain.

Thanks again.

Mormon wells is fun and easy. Last time I went was at night and I saw a ton of bats and owls. Lived here my whole life and never saw an owl until then.
