Trail Overview

Muldoon starts off as a gentle, wide, rolling trail. As you proceed North, out of the grassy pasture, the trail yields to off camber mudruts with whoop-like rollers in several spots. The further North, the rougher this trail gets with small ledges, steep rocky hill-climbs, and wash crossings. High clearance is required as some of the hills have sneaky rock garden sections that will happily test your skills as a driver. If you thought the views in the valley were pretty, wait til you see them up top. On your way, look for a few sporadic campsites on the ridge with great views, and primitive fire rings. With no service on this route, it just might be the perfect way to disconnect. The trail terminates back down at the level of the Verde River, with a large campsite, turnaround, and a gate indicating further hiking and exploration trails deeper into the wilderness.
