Grass Shack is a great campground that offers shade from large sycamores as well as other riparian species. Two of the larger streams-Chimenea Creek and Madrona Creek run through and by the campground, providing water most of the year. Fires are not allowed here being in a fragile riparian ecosystem surrounded by a thick grassland. Access is from Camino Loma Alta, and this ten mile hike climbs 2,200 feet to a campground often not affected by winter storms. Views are exceptional to the south as you climb through and above the saguaros. This is the first of two campgrounds on the Arizona Trail.
