Trail Overview

Very scenic trail in the foothills of the Bradshaw Mountains. Although not far from the highway and Black Canyon City, this route feels isolated and offers a chance to spot wildlife, beautiful desert plant life, and sweeping views of the Bradshaw Mountains and Castle Creek Wilderness in the Prescott National Forest. If heading to or from Crown King, this trail provides you with a more technical and scenic route.
