Day Hiking

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.
