We wanted to do a less strenuous hike in preparation for tougher adventures as the weather warms. Reading the description by BrettVet, it looked like the Chinaman Trail was perfect.
Turns out, the Jeep drive to the trail head was more of a challenge than the trail :-)
Would strongly suggest high clearance four wheel drive, and 'airing down'.
From Tunnel Spring, the trail seems to go up the mountain, then down to the tunnel entrance. GPS showed a 140 foot drop to the tunnel through loose gravel (and if you hike out and back, you must go UP this part to get back to the parking area).
GPS recorded round trip of 6.6 miles in 4:06 hrs.
A good hike with historical significance along the Arizona Trail.
