Scenic, easy loop trail.

This is a beautiful little hike. There is considerable deadfall, mostly on the uphill portion.

Let's clear up a few inaccuracies with the trail description.

First, this trail is in Greer, AZ (not Eagar) and is several miles from the Mount Baldy Wilderness area.
Second, the Fir Trail is a 0.9 mile loop trail. It is very well marked, though portions are seldom used. The loop is a pleasant walk through the forest. The map included with the description is for the Fir Trail only.
Third, the trail description is really for the combined Fir and Ponderosa Trails. The Pondersoa Trail is 2.6 miles itself. The Fir Trail is rated as Easy, and the Ponderosa trail is rated as Moderate.

While the trailhead is clearly marked, the trail is not. Enjoyed the birds and wildflowers.

Please note that the previous reviewer who stated it was closed came during the forest closure period to avoid forest fires. Almost all of the trails in the mountains were closed. Nice hike. Although it is nice to let others know when a trail is closed, by putting one star you may be discouraging others from visiting a perfectly nice trail. Never assume if you don't want to be disappointed - the local ranger station is always happy to let you know about trail and forest closures.

Easy hiking and wonderful for anyone with any skill level. I gave it a 3 because it seemed a little too easy for my personal taste and too close to the road. there was a spot that had some lovely wildflowers growing and a prime spot for taking pictures. I would do this one again if I needed something quick and easy and still get some nature in.

I give it a 1 star only so I could report this trail is closed (6-23-2018) and was disappointed I couldn't hike it.

Really enjoyed our hike! Very easy and nice views. Not a lot of shade but enough for us to cool down when needed

This trail is part of the Squirrel Springs trail system and the trailhead is clearly marked along route 373. The trailhead features ample parking and restrooms. This is a relatively short trail which features some spectacular natural rock formations as well as a nearby stream affording hikers great photo opportunities. The trail does not gain in elevation much and is clearly marked, making hiking even in snow cover straightforward.
