The trail starts on the Rim near the military road built by Gen. George Crook. Access is from either Two-Sixty Trailhead or FR 300; 1.9 miles west of Hwy. 260 (at the scenic vista parking lot).
This is probably the easiest trail down the Mogollon Rim in terms of steepness and hazards along the way. Views from the parking area near the start of the trail are spectacular. The trail is as wide as a road although some trees and shrubs are growing on the trail. Ponderosa pine, fern, and oak are the most common plants found along the trail and some interesting rock formations are easily seen.
Unsure. The area is influenced by General Crook but perhaps a reference to the Vietnam War term. Clark M. Clifford, the secretary of defense 1968-1969, advised President Lyndon B. Johnson that it was immoral to consider enormous added investments to Vietnam, calling that a military sinkhole.
