To hike
To get to the trail head from Phoenix area: Take 87 N. straight through Payson toward Pine. You will go through a round about with a Home Depot to the West. Once past the round about there is a turning lane to go right. This Right is Houston Mesa road. Take Houston Mesa RD approximatly 1 mile. You will see a trail head sign and a good sized parking lot on the right. Drive in, park, load up with some water and enjoy. Watch for deer, quail, and I will jump up elk half of the time.
