This path follows portions of old logging roads through pinyon & juniper woodlands. This region of the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest was badly burnt in 2002 and it had not recovered as of 2012. In the summer this region can be hot and dry. This is a 3.3 mile loop with the elevation varying from 6,300’ to 6,390’.
