Follow directions to the Tom's Thumb trailhead. From the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy Website: Follow the well-marked Tom’s Thumb trail south out of the Tom’s Thumb trailhead pavilion. Stay on the Tom’s Thumb trail as it climbs past various junctions on the right and left to a marked junction with the East End trail at a high saddle. Go straight on the Tom’s Thumb trail at the junction. Continue on the Tom’s Thumb trail first west and then south past various side trails until it ends at the Windgate Pass trail. Turn left onto the Windgate Pass trail. Follow it east over the pass to the junction with the Bell Pass trail. At this point the Windgate Pass trail ends, but continue straight east on the Windmill trail a short distance to the junction with the East End trail. Turn left onto the East End trail and climb it northward to its end at the Tom’s Thumb trail back at the high saddle. From there, continue north on the Tom’s Thumb trail back to the trailhead.

Tolle Wanderung mit fantastischer Aussicht. Ich habe 11,1 Meilen und 3127 Höhenmeter. Ziemlich fester Treck, ich würde es nicht in den wärmeren Monaten versuchen, da die Schatten spärlich sind.

Erstaunlicher, Hinterntritt !!! An einigen Stellen sehr steinig (East End Trail) und erfordert gute Fußarbeit. Unglaublich landschaftlich und die Mühe wert. Inspiration Viewpoint ist ein schöner Ort für eine Mittagspause.

Tolle Wanderung! Manchmal herausfordernd und auch an vielen interessanten Orten: Toms Daumen, The Lookout, Inspiration Viewpoint, Windgate Pass, Miner's Cave, Ogerhütte. Der Teil des Pfades zu Toms Daumen wird stärker als der Rest des Pfades gehandhabt.
