Overview: Garden Grove Trail #392 is part of a network of trails serving the Thumb Butte area. This trail begins in well-shaded pine forest and crosses Miller Creek as well as a number of drainages that carry water in early spring. A variety of wildflowers can be seen in these areas, along with the birds and insects that pollinate them. This trail begins to switchback up a ridge about three-quarters of a mile from the trailhead. The climb is short, but somewhat steep. It levels out again in oak and juniper woodland where it ends at its junction with Thumb Butte Bypass Trail #326 and Circle Connection Trail #322.

This trail connects with other trails that can be combined to create a variety of loops. One suggested route, available to all non-motorized users, is to travel Trail #392 to Trail #326. Take Trail #326 northeast as it winds downhill to Miller Creek Trail #367, which provides a truly beautiful passage back along Miller Creek to the beginning of the Garden Grove Trail #392. This loop covers roughly 3.5 miles. This trail is open to hikers, horseback riders, and mountain bicyclists. Please be considerate of other users--slow down and know when to yield the trail. Portions of the trail pass through burned areas. Watch for loose rocks and falling snags. Use extra caution in windy conditions.

One-Way Notice: This hike is listed as One-Way. When you hike several trails on a single "hike", log it with a generic name that describes the hike. Then link the trails traveled, check out the example.
