Rock Crossing Trail #18C - Blue Ridge is a 0.68 mile one way hike with 331 feet elevation gain. Located 52 miles south-southeast of Flagstaff Arizona. A high clearance vehicle is recommended to access the trailhead. May and October are the best months to enjoy this hike.

Rock Crossing Trail #18 is split into three segments because it crosses Blue Ridge / C.C. Cragin Reservoir two times.

Segment #18C technically begins on the south arm of the lake, and ascends to FR139A, however most people hike it from the top down to the lake. Hikers may also hike 1.75 miles on FR139A to the junction of Houston Brothers, U-Bar, and Fred Haught Trails where FR95 crosses Houston Draw.
