Trailhead Connector Route
by markthurman53

The Deer Tanks Trail starts at the end of Idaho Road at the Idaho Road Trailhead Parking. Almost immediately the Wolverine Pass Trail heads off to the east. This is a good trail to take if you are wanting an interconnect trail between Idaho Road and the Bulldog Canyon Trailhead. The majority of this trail follows along McDowell Road just inside the National Forest Boundary and ends up on the Power line trail, actually a dirt road that leads to the Bull Dog Canyon Trailhead

From the trailhead at the end of Idaho Road take the Deer Tanks Trail north. I do not know if the trail is signed or not I did not check. Almost immediately a trail will split off to the east and this is the Wolverine Pass Trail. This trail skirts around the south side of an area called the Spires. The Superstitions can be seen off in the distance to the east. McDowell road parallels this trail for about 0.6 miles just on the other side of the Forest boundary. Because this trail follows along the lower slopes of a hill it ends up going up and down into every gully that is coming down off the hill. At the end of a long day of hiking this can be a little irritating. Eventually this trail heads to the northeast toward the Power line trail/road. The trail ends at the power line Trail/Road. Take the Power Line Road to the south east for 0.2 miles to get to the Bulldog Canyon Trailhead. This is not a real interesting trail with views of homes on the other side of McDowell Road but then it is an interconnecting trail so it doesn’t need to be.
