DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED! Very DISAPPOINTED TO DRIVE ALL THE WAY TO TRAILHEAD AND NOT BE ABLE TO HIKE.
ALLTRAILS APP DOES NOT HAVE CURRENT INFO!

The east end of the loop has not been used in years! But if you actually follow closely to trail and the map it is a great adventure and worth exploring!

This western half of this trail is good until after it joins the Gila Monster Trail. At the point where the Gila Monster continues north and you’re supposed to leave it and head southeast, the trail peters out and all but disappears. With the help of the downloaded AllTrails map, we were able to find remnants of the old trail but most of it was overgrown and basically gone. The three of us spent lots of time branching out individually to look for the trail. I suggest you take the western part of this loop trail and combine it with something else. Skip the eastern half.
