Hell's Gate Trail #37 is rarely hiked from end to end. It is more commonly hiked from the north trailhead near Little Green Valley east of Payson or from the south trailhead near Smoky Hollow west of Young.


There are no loop options, so completing the trail will require an out-and-back hike or a shuttle that takes most drivers a minimum of 2 hours of driving between the two trailheads.

Guides for the more commonly hiked individual segments can be found here:
Hellsgate 37 ( North ) to Tonto Creek
Hellsgate 37 ( South ) - Smoky Hollow

Check out the Official Route and Triplogs.

Note
This is a moderately difficult hike.
