Overview
Land of the Pioneers #651 is a 8.7 mile round trip loop hike with 870 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 93 miles southeast of Winslow Arizona. Trailhead access is via a dirt road which is typically car accessible when dry. May and October are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Winds through ponderosa, pinion and Juniper. Excellent views of the eastern White Mountain are had from Ecks Mountain on the Long Loop. The box canyon and ruins of a pioneer cabin on the North leg of the loop are must sees. Two shortcut trails make this trail a mini Trail System unto itself. Ecks Mountain is a moderate climb from the South side, and a longer, steeper climb from the North side.

Check out the Official Route.
