We did about 4 miles total of this trail segment. Lots of steep, fall line climbs that are short and sweet. Many down trees. No really good place to park. Overall a decent walk in the woods.

I expected this to be a great hike from the beginning. we spotted an Arizona black rattlesnake at the beginning of the trail. after hiking the Fred Naught trail we continued on the Arizona trail until accessing the pipeline road. that was the most direct route back. great hike with awesome trees.

I coupled this with the Houston Brothers trail to make for a great little backpacking trip! Beautiful trail with running water still. Cute little cabins along the way, too.

This hike is ok. Be prepared to drive 12 miles on a rocky dirt road along the rim to get here. The cabin is really neat, but other than that, I didn't think the trail was anything spectacular. The Tunnel Via Arizona Trail is much prettier & you can hike up to this trail to see the cabin, then head back down. You will also not have to drive on the gnarly dirt road.

nice hike. gorgeous weather with snow on the ground still in some places. water was flowing the entire trail and we had to get creative crossing it many times if we didn't want to get our shoes wet.

Excellent trail for beginning hikers. Beautiful area and lots of nice camping spots along the trail. Did a two day hike and camp with my daughter over the weekend and saw very few hikers. Excellent for hanging a hammock. Saw multiple bear scats but didn’t see any bears. Come prepared.

Total peace out here besides the few noisy frogs at night. Which is somewhat soothing. Stars are absolutely brilliant at night. Killer rock formations and big dead wood lay the sides of the trail. Can’t help but think of what it was like back when Fred Haught was around. Was disappointed at end of trail thinking there was a spring which we hunted around for and couldn’t find. None the less a simple beautiful hike even with the Creek running slow take you’re time and enjoy some of the beautiful spots. Take photos to share with friends family or to show your Ma and tell her how much ya love her.

First to Review

Very easy hike. I did this trail with my daughter - 11 yrs old. It was her first backpacking/overnight trip. We enjoyed the hike & scenery. Most of this hike is in the shade of Pine Trees along a creek (which only has running water from the run-off). The trail is easily marked & easy to follow ...just hard to find off of the FR 300 road. The trail head starts at the bottom of a road where an old cabin is so, we parked up top & hiked down. There are plenty of places to camp along the trail if you don't want to go all the way to Fred Haught Springs, which by the way, was only 4 miles from start of trail head. Next year, I will do this hike again with my other daughter but will be in March to catch the run-off so, we have more choices for water.
