Calloway Trail is a 1.1 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Happy Jack, Arizona and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from April until November.
Directions from Flagstaff: Approximately 2.5 miles north of the junction of State Routes 87 and 260, turn east onto Forest Road (FR) 144. Follow FR 144 to FR 149. Turn left on FR 149 and then left again on FR 142. Follow FR 142 for approximately 4 miles to FR 142B. Turn onto FR 142B and continue to the roads end. FR 142B is very rough and requires high-clearance vehicles and occasionally four-wheel drive to reach the trailhead.
A bit hard getting down 142B in an SUV. Possible, just tough. The trail is in pretty good condition. It is a steep hike back up with a fully loaded pack. Once down by the creek, everything was very overgrown as of August 1 2016.
Awesome. Beautiful. Steep.
