Likely In-Season!
The Una Del Oso Trail #201 is a short little trail in the Pinal Mountains south of Globe. A former road, the Una Del Oso Trail provides access to the middle section of the Tollroad Trail. The Tollroad Trail was a former toll road built in 1883 to connect Globe to the Pioneer Mining District on the south side of the Pinal Mountains. In 1882, somewhere in the Una Del Oso/Tollroad Trail area, a robbery of a Wells Fargo pack train took place. Pinal Creek canyon is a peaceful area today, and wagons loaded with precious metals from two centuries ago have been replaced by hikers, bikers, and horseback riders, in this scenic mountain canyon.


Beginning at the Una Del Oso trailhead along forest road 112, the Una Del Oso Trail leaves the road and the top of the ridge behind, and begins descending into an oak and juniper woodland. On this stretch, Globe is visible in the distance, at the mouth of Sixshooter Canyon. High above to the south are the forested slopes of East Mountain and Pinal Peak. Across the canyon, the Tollroad Trail can be seen, snaking along the brushy green mountainside. The Una Del Oso Trail does seem to be popular with bears, as its name suggests, with many overturned rocks along the route. A few ponderosas are encountered among the manzanita and century plants, as the trail makes a steady descent to the pine filled bottom of Pinal Creek. The trail soon arrives at the bottom of Pinal Creek, among water polished boulders of pale grey metamorphic rock. Pinal Creek may have water in it, depending on the time of year. Judging from the sycamores and cottonwoods in the stream bed, there must be at least some moisture present year round. The Una Del Oso Trail crosses Pinal Creek, and meets up with the Tollroad Trail on the east bank, among the ponderosa pines and white oaks. A sign marks the junction.

Return the way you came, or create a loop hike using the upper or lower halves of the Tollroad Trail, in conjunction with forest road 112.
