Overview: This scenic and easy to follow trail with quick TH access located in-between the east boundary of the Salome Wilderness and the west boundary of the Sierra Ancha Wilderness offers great views as it makes it way up to McFadden Peak-with a 360 view of the surrounding areas, and with an active fire tower that was built in 1968 and is listed in the AZ historical record. With seasonal creeks, a "huge blackberry patch" along the right side of the trail bordering seasonal McFadden Creek(only ~.25mls in from the Circle Ranch TH), and a private ranch along the way, this trail and hike is a great way to spend a summer or autumn day between 5250' and a high point of 7135'.
