Overview: This apparently abandoned trail climbs Dutch Henry Canyon on the southeastern edge of the Pinaleno Mountains, and connects with the Bear Canyon Trail #299 on its upper end. The Dutch Henry Trail is quite scenic, beginning in mesquite-grassland, and ending in a nice pine-fir forest at top. The canyon has been spared from recent devastating wildfires. The Dutch Henry Trail is in very poor condition, is nearly overgrown, and exists mostly as a sparsely cairned route. I'd say route-finding and difficulty are both a 4. Plan on an entire day for a one-way hike. The upper trailhead on Highway 366 is accessible by car at Ladybug Saddle, while the lower trailhead is 4x4, due to sandy washes. -Preston Sands, Nov. 23, 2010
