Hard Packed Single Track, due to current loging operation it's best to use the route shown, which takes a shortcut by the campground trail head to only do the north 1/2 of loop.

This was a great trail! It was well marked and maintained, and the trail itself is interesting to follow, with a wide variety of nature and wildlife (including cows). However, be aware that the loop itself is closer to being 13 miles long than it is to being 9 miles.

Beautiful trail full of wildlife, aspen groves and thick dense canopy. We took our Cub Scout den and hiked 6 miles of the loop. It was a great time and was not very difficult.

This trail was very well marked. I agree it is definitely moderate. Not much wildlife except for a few horn toads. We took the short loop, which took us about 3 1/2 hours. Definitely worth it.

Tough but fun hike if you do the full 13 miles.

I thought this was a fun trail. The uphill was a bit challenging but you are rewarded by the long downhills. Not too many technical areas. Beautiful ride.

READ THIS FIRST!!!! The directions listened for the trail head is not accurate! The trail head is actually at the Los Burros camp site off the Vernon McNary road. Nothing to hard. I think it's more of a cross country trail. Easily marked just follow the blue diamonds.

Very easy to get lost on this system of trails. You initially start out of a campground, then follow a power line trail for a bit. It then dips off into the forest and winds you up around Wishbone Mountain. There are many intersecting roads (ATV) and trails that are unmarked. Do not go to far to the South East for you will be entering the White Mountain Apache Indian lands. Great for mountain biking!!! You can definately make it a 20-30 mile bike trail by doing various loops.
