Horseshoe Mesa Mileage Question

Post by stevebo » Oct 08 2015 1:37 pm

I cannot for the life of me find the mileage of the loop trail around Grandview Mesa. It's either 2.8 or 3.0 miles from Grandview Point to the ruined building on Horseshoe Mesa. But if I want to continue on the trail towards Cave of the Domes and go all the way to the intersection with the Tonto Trail, how far is that?

I'm pretty sure it's about 4.0 or 4.1 miles from that intersection to the trail intersection that heads back up to Miner's (Page) Spring. I think it's about 1.2-1.4 miles from that intersection back to the Grandview Trail (or maybe to the ruined building).

Can anyone shed light on this? Any maps with the mileage segments on them?

Many thanks in advance.
Steve

@stevebo I haven't hike the route you are asking about, but I found a GPS track that seems to be what you are looking for.

If you look at the elevation profile you can move your mouse along it to see exactly what the mileages are at what points.

I hope that helps.

From Horseshoe Mesa to the Tonto trail is 1.4 miles. The total is about 12 miles

The Sky Terrain map has all the mileage segments - it's the only map I recommended when I worked at the Canyon.
