Overview: Located within the "Cabin Loop Trails" area on the Mogollon Rim, this remote Class 1 hiking loop area of upper Barbershop Canyon sees few human visitors and offers some very pleasant summer "off-trail" hiking in this riparian canyon section with summer perennial water flows, nice pools, beautiful riparian vegetation, and an opportunity to possibly view various Mogollon Rim wildlife as you navigate the numerous animal trails with some tree downfall to navigate under, around, and over. Also, it should be noted that the posted GPS default track is highly recommended for download and following as the decent into and climb out of Barbershop Canyon requires some intermediate navigation skills.
