Cottonwood Trail #120 is a 6.35 mile one way hike with 2,003 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 39 miles east-northeast of Mesa Arizona. The trailhead is car accessible. November and March are the best months to enjoy this hike.

From the Frazier Trailhead, the trail meanders over low ridges and through drainages until it drops into Cottonwood Canyon. Then it goes up the canyon and junctions with FR 341 that serves as the trail. Turn left onto FR 341 and travel south for approximately 1.5 miles. The trail takes off from the road to the south and continues to follow Cottonwood Canyon. After approximately 3 miles, the trail reaches the southern terminus at FR 83.
