Likely In-Season!
A scenic and peaceful loop hike, which includes numerous perennial(4) and seasonal named/unnamed springs. This moderate and mostly "off-trail" loop hike close to our Mogollon Rim- Cabin Loop area trails with route finding skills recommended, offers a very pleasant remote hiking experience within the entire off-trail length of Maverick Canyon to intersect scenic, historic sections of Upper to the start of Middle Merritt Draw.

Check out the Official Route and Triplogs.
