Likely In-Season!
From the Canelo Pass Trailhead the trail runs generally westward as it climbs over a 5,600' saddle and drops into the upper end of Meadow Valley. It continues west through Redrock Canyon, passing Down Under Tank and the Cott Tank Environmental Exclosure, before arriving at Red Bank Well. Turning north, the trail passes close to Gate Spring, passes Red Rock Road (4-WD), and then continues through hills and oak and manzanita growth before dropping down to the trailhead on Harshaw Road (FR 58). From here the route follows Harshaw Road for about 3 miles and ends at the Post Office in Patagonia.

Southern Trailhead: Canelo Pass

Northern Trailhead: Patagonia - Hwy 82
