Curtis W. on Verde Rim Loop Trail
I have only hiked a very short portion of the Verde Rim Trail #161 in order to complete a loop that included Nelson Trail #159 to Willow Springs Trail #12 to Verde Rim Trail #161 to Pine Mountain Trail #14 to Nelson Trail #159. While I cannot review the whole trail end to end, I can say that the views were terrific. The hike follows along the rim. If you are interested in the loop I have reviewed the other trails as well. If you hike the Verde Rim trail, make sure not to miss the side trail up to the top of pine mountain. It is mark with a small sign between the Willow Springs and Pine Mountain trails. It is not far from the top of the Pine Mountain trail.
