    This can be combined with the Lost Goldmine Trail to make a nice loop starting and ending at the Heiroglyphic trailhead or discover many other connecting trails in the foothills. Nice work on these trails and signed well. Great for mountain biking or hiking. The route I show for this date has me starting at the site of the old Apacheland movie set, which is an alternate trailhead.

    Permit $$
    AZ State Land Recreational Permits are available for an individual ($15.00), or a family limited to two adults and children under the age of 18 ($20.00).
