Trail Information

This is probably the easiest trail down the Mogollon Rim in terms of steepness and hazards along the way. Views from the parking area near the start of the trail are spectacular. The trail is as wide as a road although some trees and shrubs are growing on the trail. Ponderosa pine, fern and oak are the most common plants found along the trail and some interesting rock formations are easily seen.


From the North:
Take Forest Road 34 to Forest Road 300; turn left and proceed 1.3 miles past where the pavement begins (on right, just beyond the bridge) and watch for the trailhead sign.

From the South:
Take State Highway 260 to Forest Road 300 and then drive 2 miles to a signed parking area just before the bridge on the left.
