This is a popular route for riding horses. A flat hike through old ranch pastures and along fence lines from when the property was the Merrick Bar-O Ranch. You will be able to see the ranch home built in 1916 as well as several barns. The house is now used by the Park Rangers. When you cross the spring fed West Verde Creek look up and down the creek. It has some very interesting pools and rock ledges. Watch out for livestock as you hike past the barns, you may be sharing the pastures with them. Throughout the whole hike you will have very nice views of the surrounding hills and pastures. Show more
