Overview: This trail is a newly constructed segment of the Arizona Trail, although not finalized. Work was still progressing as of April 8, 2011.

The start of the trail has a moderate elevation gain for about 1.5 miles through areas of Prickly Pear, Ocotillo, and Saguaros. Then the trail climbs more rapidly over switchbacks and freshly dug trail for about a mile. There is a gradual gain of another 150 ft toward the highest point with grand views of Rincon Peak and Helen's Dome in the East, X9 Ranch and the Rincon Valley toward the South, and Mt Wrightson toward the West. From there the trail descends about 100 ft to the intersection with the Manning Camp Trail. In several places the path is a fine grain powder. Use caution in steep places that are without standard stepping stones (still in progress).

Return to the trailhead or continue on to Manning Camp.

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
