off road driving


Directions from Patagonia: Drive north out of Patagonia on 1st Avenue and continue 2.5 miles to the National Forest boundary. The road becomes Forest Road 72. Follow Road 72 for 4 or 5 miles, depending on the condition of the road. Usually this route is passable by passenger cars to the Forest Road 72/Forest Road 72A. Walk 2.5 miles up Forest Road 72, now a rough jeep track, headed toward Walker Basin to the 595 trailhead. The Temporal Gulch Trail stays with the stream bed.

Unless you have a truck or keep of some sort you will need to stop at the parking area and hike up to where the trail begins.
