The Little Horse Trail begins as part of the Bell Rock Pathway. Follow this wide trail southward for 0.25 mile. Here, at a signed fork, take the old jeep road branching to the left and marked with basket cairns. The road drops to cross a dry streambed, climbs a bit and ends at the 0.75 mile point. The trail continues to the left and climbs moderately, topping out on a large, flat expanse. Turn to the right here. The level trail leads into a stand of Arizona cypress and intersects Chapel Trail about 1.4 miles from the Chapel of the Holy Cross as it nears the "Madonna and the Nuns" spire rock formation. Continue for 150 yards passing the base of the knobs of Chicken Point on the left. Take the path left for a short climb onto the bare rock for wonderful views. This point is used by jeep tours via Broken Arrow Road.Show more

Turkey Creek Trail No. 92 is open to horse, bike, and foot use. The trail is difficult for biking, but moderate for hikers. Beautiful scenery and great view from the top of the mountain. Bring your hiking poles because the last portion is a bit steep but otherwise it’s a fairly flat trail. Definitely not hard, even the last portion that is uphill was moderate as long as you’ve been hydrating, bring plenty of water since there is hardly any shade. Show more
