Decided to check this trail out on the Payson Area Trail Systems. This one is a nice length for a close to Payson hike. It was a fairly warm day. And the trail in really open and not much shade on it. Not a good one for the middle of summer even in Payson. With lots of scrub brush with pinon and juniper trees. There was quite a few flowers even being dry since the last of the rains have been so long ago. And the Hedgehogs were blooming. I only came across one lady and her three dogs on the other end of the trail.
