Upper Scorpion Campground Loop via Middle Fork Trail #157 and Big Bear Canyon Trail #28
Gorgeous trail that spends substantial time moving up the middle fork canyon. You'll have countless river crossings, so wear shoes and socks that function well when wet. Don't expect to find water out of the canyons during the dry season (summer) so be ready to carry at least 3 quarts of water when leaving the river.
This is a moderate loop trail in Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument.
Climbing up and down out of the canyon can be a real challenge. The river crossings aren't dangerous, and would be a lot of fun for kids that are comfortable with water.
