Overview
Maverick Canyon - Merritt Draw Loop is a 5.2 mile round trip hike with 648 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 58 miles south-southeast of Flagstaff Arizona. May and September are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.


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.
