This is a loop hike starting at the Eldon Lookout Trail to Eldon Peak, Sunset Trail to Schultz Pass, then Arizona Equestrian Bypass Trail (Little Eldon Trail) to Sandy Seep Trail and Christmas Tree Trail back to start point. The Eldon Lookout Trail is 2.9 miles long and climbs 2360 feet, quite a workout. Once on the peak though there are great views in all directions. The sunset trail is 5.5 miles with gradual down slope trail to Schultz Pass, with an elevation loss of 1814 feet. Very scenic trail through pine and fir forest with great views from along ridge north of Eldon Peak to the east and northeast. There are numerous connector trails to the Sunset Trail, so it makes a good connector trail for a multitude of loop trails. Once at Schultz Tank and a break the return route is via Little Eldon Trail. The Eldon Trail is a gradual down Hill with the exception of a small 200 foot climb just before the junction with the Sandy Seep Trail. Scenic trail but seems a little mundane after the Sunset Trail. From sandy Seep junction the Christmas Tree Trail takes you back to the start point. The Christmas Tree trail is in a heavily traveled area and you have to watch the trail signs because there are numerous trails heading off in all directions trying hard to lure you onto them. A GPS is very helpful.
