Little Painted Desert County Park (aka Hwy 87 Painted Desert Rim Trail)
9 hiking trails
La Posada Hotel in Winslow AZ as base camp
A hiking sojourn on the way to Navajo and Hopi lands...
This is a derelict stop located along an old alignment http://hikearizona.com/phoZOOM.php?ZIP=53613
of Hwy 87 about 15 miles north of Winslow. Found an abandoned trail http://hikearizona.com/phoZOOM.php?ZIP=53602
leading from the rim down to the desert floor complete with staircases (albeit some washed out). I'll post the GPS route http://hikearizona.com/location_g.php?GPS=827
Only thing stopping this hike from being a "5" are the ever present beer bottles!
Picked up bits and pieces of information about a Painted Desert location called Dinosaur Canyon. I'm unaware at this time if this is connected to the Tuba City Dinosaur Tracks site http://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=1042
. Think this may be an excuse (I actually may have a dozen excuses) for a return visit to the region...
