Trailhead tricky to find. After parking keep walking toward house at dead end. Trailhead is on the left. The last 1.75 is paved road. We opted to take Marshall Gulch trail back to Mint Spring. Making for a total of 7..1. After so much desert hiking the woods were an ice change.

Lost the trail at the peak. Wound up walking down the road to Iron Door and picked it back up there.

A couple friends and I backpacked out on the wilderness of rocks trail and hammock camped far off the trail. We took the Mint Springs trail back to summerhaven and were surprised at how beautiful it was compared to the wilderness of rocks trail. This trail was covered in tall grass (reaching our necks in some places) and covered in wild flowers in the spring. After monsoons a nice creek flows across the trail in some parts. I would definitely backpack this trail again instead of the wilderness of rocks trail.
