Overview: Scenic, peaceful, filled with interesting points of interest including numerous perennial and seasonal named and unnamed springs, this moderate and mostly off-trail loop hike within our Mogollon Rim- Cabin Loop area with route finding skills required, offers a very pleasant remote hiking experience within the most scenic sections of Upper Barbershop Canyon and Upper to Middle Merritt Draw.

Warning: for Arizona "Monsoon Season" months of July, August, and into September.

History: This loop hike includes a short section of Barbershop Trail #91, one of the historic Cabin Loop Trails.

Water Sources: Numerous water sources with best availability for hiking months in May, July, August, and September.

Camping: Many lesser visited and primitive backpack campsites along this hiking loop route including numerous vehicle camping locations (see linked and "official" GPS hiking route with all key way points included)
