    Prescott FS Reports This trail is used mainly by ranchers as a pack trail. It is occasionally used for recreational riding and infrequently for hiking. It is also a connecting link to other trails entering the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness (TR #61, TR #52). The winter headquarters of the Pine Flat Co. are located near the west trailhead.

    Maps, other resources: Prescott National Forest, east half; U.S.G.S. topographic 7.5' quads for Perkinsville and Sycamore Basin.

    Trail layout: This trail begins adjacent to the flagstone quarries near Sand Flat. It stays on relatively level terrain through pinyon-juniper and chaparral vegetation to where it joins TR #61.

    Precautions: Typical of most trails in this region, there is no drinking water along the trail.
