Trail Overview

This trail will take you from Mingus to the quaint little town of Cherry. Cherry is an old still inhabited ghost town established in the 1880's. It is worth checking out, as many of the original buildings still exist. There is no food or gas in Cherry so be aware of that. The trail is 12 miles of the 800 miles in Arizona of the Great Western Trail, a trail that is over 3000 miles long running from Canada to Mexico. The trail is mostly shelf road and you will experience tall pines to thick Manzanita bush while enjoying expansive views. There is little to no cell phone service and very few people on the trail. Most of the trail is rocky and 4x4 is recommended . There is camping available at the north and south end but very little in the middle section. It is not suggested for winter travel.
