Trail Overview

This 48.9-mile trail travels through the Aquarius Mountain Range, and across Goodwin Mesa. Many sweeping vista views of the surrounding mountains are found along this route. Starting at the northern point, at approx. 24 miles you will arrive at Fancis Creek Ranch, this will be the first set of gates you will pass through. Use the gate which has the Sportsman Sign (to the left of the private drive). Please ensure that the gates are closed once you pass through. The next 6 miles will pass through a working cattle ranch. After this, the remaining trail is a maintained dirt road passing Muley Mountain, Elephant Mountain, and Red Knob Mountain. This part of the trail passes through many Saguaro Cactus.
