Author Full Detail Guide
Overview: More of an off-trail adventure, the route to Twilight Spring follows an old pipeline trail that leaves the Swift Trail just beyond the turnoff to Twilight Campground. The trail is almost gone, so the easier return option upon reaching Twilight Spring is to just drop down upper Twilight Canyon for a few hundred feet, and to hike back on the Twilight Campground road.

    To hike
    From Safford, head south on U.S. highway 191. Turn west onto state highway 366 (Swift Trail). Follow highway 366 approximately 14.2 miles to the turnoff for Twilight Campground. Park at the turnoff. Maybe a hundred feet or so farther up the Swift Trail from the turnoff is a metal gate on the right (uphill) side of the road, that blocks a little side road going up to a water tank. This is the beginning of the trail to Twilight Spring.
