Beautiful vistas and views along this short and beautiful trail. A wonderful spot for a morning hike and taking in the gorgeous scenery!

Spectacular scenery! Good trails. Trail ends .8 miles in, but that is beyond bridge that allows you to cross the stream so you can still make the loop.

Great short hike.

A lovely, sunny, not-too-muddy wintertime hike. Loved it!

Great hike. amazing views. at junction 11 you have the option to cut across to junction 23, only if there has not been rain or snow is this an option. was too muddy and slippery to climb. I had to double back turning a 7 mile into a 12 miler.. still beautiful and good hiking.

Very nice switchback walk up to the (presently closed) tower station, with great views through the trees as you go. We hiked Jan 25 and you could see Mt. Graham, 100 miles away. We only ran into two other hikers on the way down. There were patches of icy snow throughout, but never deep. Lots of fallen timber blocking the trail, but we figured maintenance halts during the winter months. Great short day hike if you’re in the Silver City / Gila forest area. It felt much longer than 2.5 miles one way but our watch confirmed it was exactly that.

great walk in the woods. lots to see. huge climb at the end for those who are not acclimated to the altitude yet, be aware! it’s tough.

i know this trail will be great in the spring when you’re not sliding around the mud. there’s awesome chairs like .5 miles in that are great to relax in the sun in. little hard to find trailhead and one final turn...best to download the map

Great hike. Follow the trail map. As you’re hiking you will see where two canyons merge. Look behind you and BAM, the petroglyphs are right there looking you. What a magical spot with lots of brilliant beauty.

Did this on Jan 26. Amazing trail, but not possible to do the forest and higher sections without spikes. Poles also incredibly useful. Thick snow at the top

Contrary to some of the trail sites and google maps the parking for this trail is off Hood Mesa Trail (road). Nice gravel lot, cross the road to get to the trail.

Slot Canyon closed about .5 mile in due to ice and snow

Went on a perfect Sunday. Weather was partly cloudy with perfect whispy clouds. Trail was mostly dry with muddy spots where patches of snow have melted. Crowd was moderate. The tent rock formations were pretty spectacular! The last 2/3 of the Slot Canyon Trail was closed due to snow and ice and will most likely not open until Mar when it warms enough to melt the snow. That’s what we were told by the Ranger anyways. Kinda bummed but that just means we’ll have to come back for another visit to see the rest.
