    Hannah Brzezinski reviewed Mazatzal Divide

    3 months ago

    Better known as Arizona Trail Section 23, this trail is a real treasure. Bear Spring around mile 9 has water, as well as Horse Camp Seep near the halfway point. Be prepared for elevation gain and weather changes, as the trail takes you from 2k to near 7k feet. Great for thru-hike training. Also, the last 9 miles is a steady downhill that exits the AZT and takes you to a good pick-up point on Doll Baby Ranch Road (4WD suggested).

    This trail is one of the most challenging, difficult, and mentally exhausting expeditions you will find yourself attempting. It is also one of the most rewarding. It should be reinstated that, if you are wanting anything less than a wicked adventure and like easy-to-follow trails, then pick a different hike. Do not attempt this as a day hike, and have an understanding and respect for the mountains, the desert terrain, and the unpredictability of the two. Navigation skills are essential. The sunset and sunrise on Rabbit are not to be missed!

    This trail is not for beginners! I did it as an overnight in August and enjoyed it immensely. Hikers should be highly aware of snakes (heard a rattler right outside my tent down in the canyon), wasps, and the heat. The water was dark brown in the creek, wonderful to swim in, and good for drinking as long as you have proper water purification. DO NOT attempt this trail during the rainy season--after mile 5 (out of 8.5 one-way), you descend 3k feet into Hell's Canyon and camp next to the creek, which would be deadly if the water were to suddenly rise from flash flooding. The trail has a lot of scree and is pretty exposed, so you're doing it in August heat like me, make sure to soak your clothing/hat at every opportunity and drink lots of electrolytes. Last but not least--trekking poles are highly recommended! When you do this trail, you can say you've been to the gates of Hell and back! :)

    An excellent way to spend the morning, especially with other people. It's about an hour to the top, it gets really steep and a bit technical during the last 1/3rd of the trail, (definitely would rate this part of the trail as **strenuous**), but it's a great destination hike. During the spring, the mountain is covered in green and wildflowers. A real crowd-pleaser of a trail!

    This is NOT a difficult trail. There is very little elevation change. It's heavily trafficked by mountain bikers. Goes in and out of a wash. You get a good view of the Malapais Hills.

    Excellent hike, I do this one all the time--! Easily accessed, good parking, and you can make it a longer or shorter loop. Great HIT training, too!

    Absolutely stunning views from the saddle. A good climb to the top, challenging but not back-breaking. DO NOT attempt this trail after and/or during a rainstorm. The dirt road going inland toward the trailhead will be inaccessible anyway, but also the trail itself runs through a wash which becomes treacherous if flooded.

    Popular trail, so if you want seclusion, maybe pick a weekday. Great facilities at the trailhead, maps and decent bathrooms and water are provided. Loads of parking. Moderately challenging accent, luckily this trail connects to a couple others so you can make it as long or short as you wish.

    Very tough, very worth it. Trail head is 2 miles inland off highway 60, on a dirt road. You'll see a gate at mile marker 71 (there's also a palm tree on the opposite side of the highway). The road is easy to follow but I would highly suggest a high-clearance vehicle (I wouldn't have been comfortable in anything less than my 4WD truck). Once you pass the horse trailer parking, the trail head and registry are 0.4 miles further up the road. You'll know when you can't drive any further. Bring lots of water, and rain gear during the wet season!

    More like a strenuous walk than a hike, but great destination. The palm trees are pretty outrageous, and you can nearly climb up to them (off-trail) to increase the difficulty. Dog-friendly. Nice way to spend an afternoon.
