Overview
From the underpass under Highway 87 the trail follows a drainage west a short distance and then turns right. It passes one gate and then another one and then swings to the north and goes through another gate. It heads northwest and reaches yet another gate, goes up a drainage, crosses it and gets to another gate. From here it passes under some powerlines and comes to a trail junction. A turn to the left here, another gate and then the trail begins working its way up a drainage. It crosses a small saddle and follows another drainage, curving around to the northeast and then reaching FR 25. It turns to the left onto FR 25 and follows it north. The trail descends down into McFarland Canyon and then heads upstream and follows a side canyon up to a trail junction. It takes the left fork and continues heading uphill. The trail descends down to Thicket Spring and the wilderness boundary, and then climbs steadily up to the junction with the Cornucopia Trail.


Southern Trailhead: Sunflower - Hwy 87

Northern Trailhead: Mt Peely TH - FR 201
