The trail is not as labeled as other trails in pinetop. The only map we seen was at the start, but the scenery is so grateful and beautiful that you cant help to go off the trail and actually explore. You can follow the stream or climbing the mountain on the other side of the stream. If you get lost 3/4 of the trail is surrounded by houses or roads eventually you'll hit a house or road.

We headed to Pinetop to escape the Phoenix heat for a few days and do some hiking. Thought this might be a good one to do and surprisingly it was right down the road from the Best Western we were staying at.
It's a nicely shaded path with all the trees. We saw cow, deer and a bunch of lizards as well as people on horses. Some of the trail was muddy from recent rain, but wasn't anything we couldn't walk around. Nice variety in the terrain - some rocky, dirt as well as soft sand.
I would go again, just know that extra .9 of a mile from parking to actual trail head. Was fine at the beginning, but at the end we were wishing we were done.

Was an extremely well marked trail. Kids did well. Just went to the ice cave. Was a very nest destination. The ice cave was like stepping into an air conditioner.

Our hike through this mixed consider and deciduous forest this autumn day was delightful. Although the trail was rocky, it no steep ascents or decents. One problem was that the driving directions to the trailhead were, in fact, directions to a connecting trail (Billy Creek). This made the total length twelve and a half miles. My wife and I met a few mountain bikers and some other trail runners, hikers, and their dogs. We are looking forward to snow shoeing the trail later this winter.
