Better than Havasu! (Opinions Vary)
Lava Flow Trail, in the 34,400-acre Table Top Wilderness, offers a hiking opportunity of light to moderate difficulty in a varied and dramatic Sonoran Desert landscape. Three trailheads are linked by a relatively level 7 1/4-mile trail. From south to north, the trail meanders through dense forests of saguaro, paloverde, ironwood, and cholla; skirts the jumbled basaltic slopes of Black Mountain; traverses an extensive creosote-bush flat; and crosses several large washes. Lava Flow Trail provides sweeping views of Vekol Valley and the Sand Tank Mountains to the west, while flat-topped Table Top Mountain - highest point in the Table Top Wilderness - looms to the east.
FACILITIES: No facilities are provided at the three Lava Flow Trail trailheads.
MAPS: Lava Flow Trail is depicted on the USGS 7.5-minute topographic maps entitled "Little Table Top, Ariz.," and "Antelope Peak, Ariz." The remainder of the Table Top Wilderness is depicted on USGS 7.5-minute topographic maps "Indian Butte, Ariz." and "Vekol Mts., NE, Ariz."
