Unlike most of the trails in the Spence Springs Basin, Tatanka Trail is most easily accessed from the Iron Springs Trailhead via West Side Story Trail #725, provided you are willing to hike uphill to return to the trailhead.

The Iron Springs Trailhead is 1.3 miles past the 45 mph sign on Iron Springs Road heading west from Prescott, AZ. Javelina Trail crosses Iron Springs Road at the Iron Springs Trailhead and (when hiking south) begins to follow the Iron Springs Railway right-of-way. West Side Story Trail #725 is just west of the north-south portion of Javelina Trail along the Iron Springs Railway right-of-way, while Tatanka Trail is squiggly parallel to the northwest to southeast portion of Javelina Trail.

The combination of West Side Story Trail and Tatanka Trail provides a 4.5 miles natural trail alternative to the portion of Javelina Trail along the Iron Springs Railway right-of-way. Tatanka Trail connects with six other trails (listed West to East) in the Spence Springs Basin: Tunnel Vision Trail #714, Waterline Trail #733, Sidekick Trail #721, Russ T. Fender Trail #728, Rocky Top Trail #727, and Missing Link Trail #724.
