There was an orange bucket and pick axe at the start of the trail. Seems like they did some clean up. Looks like they added/maintained some shallow drainage dips along the trail.

Trail is typical Arizona dry. Still pretty Rocky and the recent rains may of loosened it up a bit. Tough climb to the top but I made it..
